After a performance of Dave Carley’s play, Taking Liberties, join acclaimed playwright Beverley Cooper for a post show look at how censorship has played out in Ontario.

Ticket price of $30 includes both the performance of Taking Liberties and a special session with playwright Beverley Cooper. Beverley and actors will read from and talk about her play, If Truth Be Told, and join with Dave Carley in a conversation about the difficulties and responsibilities in moving historical events (like book bannings) from the headlines to the stage.
