The Watershed is a new play by Annabel Soutar, author of the docudrama Seeds. Directed by Chris Abraham and co-produced by Porte Parole and Crow’s Theatre, The Watershed premiered yesterday, July 7, and runs until July 19, 2015.
The Watershed follows a documentary theatre artist as she leads her own family on a cross-country journey, investigating the forces that are shaping the future of our natural resources. Do we really have to choose between the environment and the economy?
The play is commissioned by PANAMANIA, Toronto’s PanAm/ParaPan Am Games’ cultural event, presented by CIBC as part of AQUACULTURE, a specially curated selection of art works about water. The cast includes Bruce Dinsmore, Alex Ivanovici, Tanja Jacobs, Tara Nicodemo, Ngozi Paul, Eric Peterson, Amelia Sargisson, and Kristen Thomson. Le Partage des eaux, the play’s French version by Fanny Britt, will debut at Usine C, in the Fall of 2015.
