What we're up to

  • Seeds

    By Annabel Soutar. Directed by Dr. Katrina Dunn.

    NOVEMBER 18-26, 2022

    The fall 2022 mainstage production of the UM Theatre Program was Seeds, a gripping portrait of farming and scientific communities in conflict. Created through verbatim theatre techniques, it documents the 2004 Supreme Court of Canada showdown between Saskatchewan farmer Percy Schmeiser and biotech multinational Monsanto Inc., when a single farmer stood up to international agribusiness and almost won.
