THE EVENT:  The central focus of this event will be a reading of Facts, a new political drama by Montreal Jewish playwright Arthur Milner. The play will be read by Marcus Youssef, Sean Devine and Parick Sabongui, directed by Marisa Smith. The event will also feature a performance from musician Geoff Berner and panelists from Seriously Free Speech, Independent Jewish Voices, Canada Palestine Association and playwright Arthur Milner. 


THE PLAY

Taut and nuanced, Facts is heady and pointed without being preachy, and offers some fresh and unexpected dynamics.” -Justin Haigh, Plank Magazine, Toronto 

Facts revolves around a joint Israeli/Palestinian police investigation over a killing in the West Bank in Palestine. A Christian-American archaeologist has been murdered, and the evidence points to  a radical Israeli settler. Aside from the fact that the play’s drama reflects an ongoing debate over the lack of objectivity over the ongoing Israeli/Palestinian conflict, it is still a chilling and taut political-crime thriller that is an exciting piece of drama on its own merits. What’s exceptional, though, is that it offers a rare theatrical opportunity for both an Israeli and a Palestinian protagonist to wade through the greater political dilemma within the microcosm of a murder investigation. www.factstheplay.ca
