Discovery: A Comic Lament

In 2017 the Coalition supported the development of a full-length play about the Doctrine of Discovery,  Discovery: A Comic Lament. Written by Alison Brookins, staring Ted Swartz and Michelle Milne, the play is on tour with Ted & Company TheaterWorks.

Comic Lament finds unexpected humor at the crossroads of justice and land use, offering both comic and challenging glimpses into the absurdity of white settler oppression of  Indigenous Peoples and the land we live on. A show about love, and loss, of land, Discovery nudges us to question our stories with honesty and integrity.

This show is currently touring internationally — find out how to bring it to your area!
