Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Stokely Carmichael: just three of the undisputed heroes of the USA Civil Rights Movement. Canada, however, can boast of its own equally galvanizing - and divisive - leader: Nova Scotia's Rocky Jones, supported by his then-wife, Joan Jones. Walter Borden had barely reached his mid-twenties when he met the Joneses - well before he became Canada's preeminent actor of Black-Indigenous origin. In the late 1960s, these three very nearly incited a revolution in Nova Scotia, all while the RCMP tried to suppress them - resulting in a drama fit for Hollywood.
Come and experience a public workshop of the play-in-development Keeping Up With The Joneses, written by Culchahworks Founder/Artistic Director Andrew Craig. A talented group of ten actors will read the script live, bringing these characters and their story to life. This is your chance to be a part of the genesis of a new theatrical work that will hit Halifax and Toronto stages in 2026! Don’t miss your chance to be among the first to hear it and provide feedback! A Q & A will follow the reading.
PLEASE NOTE: this is not a staged reading - there will be no sets, costumes, or lighting.
