"Civilized" may be one of the most important things you ever see on stage!" Apt613 review, Ottawa Fringe 2022
"This show should be required viewing in this country!" The Visitorium review, Ottawa Fringe 2022
Based on actual reports, writings and speeches. Keir resurrects a "civilized" Canadian government bureaucrat from the year 1907 to defend the indefensible: the Laurier government's treatment of Indigenous Peoples. A compelling, anti-racist look at how being "civilized" has warped our values.
Performed by Metis actor, John D. Huston. Directed by Paul Hopkins.
Previews were held in Kitchener, Ontario in early June, and "Civilized" premiered at the 2022 Ottawa Fringe Festival, and will play at the 2022 Winnipeg Fringe and at Toronto's Red Sandcastle Theatre for a week opening on September 30th - National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
