Immigration Acts: Two Plays


Screenshot 2017-03-23 11.11.03
UWaterloo lecturer and English BA & PhD graduate Diana Lobb is the director of Immigration Acts, two plays being staged at the Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre from April 13 to April 29, 2017. According to the press release: “Immigration Acts stages the Canadian split personality regarding immigration—priding ourselves on national multiculturalism, while sometimes being xenophobic, if not profoundly racist, when addressing “immigrant” issues—in two one act plays. The multicultural Canada is made to sit beside the racist Canada. The audience is placed in the position of negotiating between the generous, tolerant vision of Canada in One Officer’s Experiences (by Arthur J. Vaughn) and the white supremacist, intolerant vision of Canada in The Komagata Maru Incident (by Sharon Pollock).” For information about tickets, visit the KWLT site.
