HART HOUSE THEATRE UPDATE

Issue 10, 2017/2018 Season | September 19, 2017
For Those About to Rock...
For each of our productions, our resident Videographer, Shashwat Sharma captures footage from the design and build of the show. These teasers show a little of the theatre's underbelly and the organized chaos of a production build, as well as give a glimpse into what's going to be presented on stage. Here's our tantalizing tease of the titular Hedwig and the Angry Inch:
Presenting Broadleaf Theatre's The Chemical Valley Project
For one night only, Hart House Theatre and U of T Spotlight are pleased to present the Broadleaf Theatre’s production of The Chemical Valley, featuring the talents of of recent U of T and Drama Festival alumni.

When: Wed., Sept. 27, 2017 9:15 pm
Where: Hart House Debates Room
Tickets: Pay What You Will at the door

The Chemical Valley Project is an innovative documentary-theatre solo-performance that investigates Canada’s energy infrastructure and the role of all Canadians in reconciliation. The show focuses on the efforts of the Aamjiwnaang land defenders Vanessa Gray and Lindsay Gray to protect their community’s land, air and water against the negative impacts of Canada’s petrochemical industry. Created by U of T alumni and Broadleaf Theatre’s Julia Howman and Kevin Matthew Wong – and performed by Kevin Matthew Wong – the show incorporates a unique blend of documentary footage, projection design and miniature object puppetry. As Canada continues to celebrate its 150th birthday, The Chemical Valley Project questions the foundations of 21st century Canada in light of ongoing environmental racism and the experiences of indigenous people.
