THE ELECTION

Written by Natasha Greenblatt & Yolanda Bonnell

with Jennifer Brewin, Qasim Khan, Anand Rajaram, and Courtenay Stevens 
Directed by Jennifer Brewin
Dramaturgy by Yvette Nolan

Theatre Passe Muraille presents a Common Boots Theatre Production in association with Nightwood Theatre and Theatre Direct

October 4 - 27, 2019 at Theatre Passe Muraille (16 Ryerson Avenue)

In 2015, a group of artists from Ojibwe, Jewish, Polish, Tamil and Pakistani backgrounds, identifying as straight, queer and bi-sexual, infiltrated the election as volunteers for three major political parties and documented their experiences. Incorporating kaleidoscopic political views as well as questions of Indigenous sovereignty, The Election promises to spark an urgent dialogue just as Canadians are about to take another swing at the ballot box.

Created with the support of Studio 180 Theatre’s IN DEVELOPMENT program.
