Public History visits the Theatre! Give a quick listen to history grad student Rick Duthie’s interview on CBC’s radio show Morning North in Sudbury. It aired the morning of a second staged reading performance of his play Sudbury Strike Stories on 15 October 2018. It includes a brief chat with him about his dissertation using theatre as a means of exploring the past, as well as a scene excerpt from this very exciting work in progress. It will give you a glimpse into one quirky and adventurous project coming out of the Carleton History Department.
The play will be performed at Legion Branch 76 in Sudbury. Markus Schwabe of CBC recorded an excerpt of the play and met with Duthie to find out more about the production.
