Production Notes


Firehall Arts Centre Production

A socially-conscious comedy about refugee issues and the aftermath of genocide? How very Canadian.” – Joff Schmidt, CBC

A new Canadian play by Trish Cooper about a South Sudanese “Lost Boy” adopted by a well-intentioned Winnipeg family. This rich comedy takes on Canadian values and cultural differences, yielding hilarious results. Social Studies explores what it means to be connected to each other and the willingness it takes to change. Trish Cooper creates fleshed out characters, so full of contradictions, it reminds us of ourselves.
