THEA 311: A Queer Trial
In 1860, two successive Victoria juries effectively acquitted an openly gay man of sodomy charges, the first jury preferring to spend a night in jail themselves sooner than agree on a guilty verdict. This production is a culmination of THEA 311, a course about creating site-specific theatre, directed by UVic theatre alumnus Matthew Payne, the Artistic Producer of Theatre SKAM. Join UVic theatre students as they musically and dramatically reenact this surprisingly inspiring event from Victoria’s early colonial history—on the very site where it occurred.
