Following the wildly successful run of The Public Servant, Common Boots Theatre delivers a provocative and hilarious investigation of how Canadians engage in democracy.
In 2015, a group of theatre makers signed up with the Canadian Federal Election as volunteers for three major political parties and documented their interactions. Exploring the intersection of Indigenous, Settler and Newcomer experiences with the political process, The Election sparks urgent dialogue just as Canadians are about to take another swing at the ballot box. With a live vocal score, this play asks: Do we have a voice and does that voice count?
Using integrated audio description with a live vocal score, all performances are accessible for Blind audiences and those with low vision.
The Election was developed with the support of Studio 180 Theatre and the Banff Playwrights Lab.
