THE RED SHIFT - by Nicole Leroux (dramaturgy by Vern Thiessen*)

THE RED SHIFT welcomes you to a Canada in the not too distant future. A country where citizens no longer see themselves reflected in the decisions of federal parliament. With an election a long three years away, the Anglophones of Quebec saw voting oui as a coup d’état that would force a federal election. The now sovereign Francophones have a different plan. THE RED SHIFT follows Louise as she tackles questions surrounding her childhood, heritage, and her decision to pen the article that completed Rene Levesque and the Parti Quebecois’ movement. THE RED SHIFT finally gives a voice to the bicultural few that are caught in the middle of our nation’s 300 year old culture war and asks:

“Why must it be that for one culture to survive another must die?” – THE RED SHIFT

A RED SHIFT is about choices and the repercussions those choices have, whether they be personal, political or environmental. THE RED SHIFT was first produced at the 2006 Toronto Fringe Festival, was ‘Best of Fringe’ (EYE Magazine), and received national attention. (Please visit PRESS for more info.)
