Description

Discovery: A Comic Lament is coming to North Fresno MB Church on Friday, February 16 at 7:30 pm

Starring Ted Swartz, owner/creative director of Ted & Company Theaterworks, and Michelle Milne, this latest production of Ted & Co crosses into new emotional and historic territory.

Discovery: A Comic Lament weaves through time and geography, from Europeans “discovering” the New World to the Kansas wheat fields and pipelines of the present, offering both comic and challenging glimpses into the absurdity of white settler oppression of Indigenous Peoples and the land we live on. Discovery: A Comic Lament is a play about the Doctrine of Discovery, the legal framework that justifies the theft of land and oppression of Indigenous Peoples. Together, we can laugh at ourselves, we can seriously consider, we can lament, and we can start conversations about a difficult topic through the connected space that live theater offers.

Produced by Ted & Co, written by Alison Brookins, and directed by Phil WeaverStoesz. Created in partnership with the Dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery Coalition. Sponsored by Mennonite Mission Network and the JustPax Fund. For more information, go to www.tedandcompany.com

The 90 minute performance will be followed by reflections from Sarah Augustine.

Augustine is the executive director of the Dispute Resolution Center of Yakima and Kittitas Counties, founding member of the Anabaptist Coalition to Dismantle the Doctrine of Discovery, and adjunct professor of sociology at Heritage University (WA).
