Seeds is a dramatic re-enactment of the 7-year legal battle between Saskatchewan farmer Percy Schmeiser and one of the biggest biotech corporations, Monsanto Inc. While debates about GMOs are multiplying everywhere, life-changing experiments are being conducted in the food we eat… Based on court trial transcripts, interviews with Percy Schmeiser, Monsanto representatives, and with farmers, academics, lawyers and scientists from all across Canada, Seeds leads us through a suspenseful labyrinth of legal conflicts around patent rights, scientific showdowns about GM food, and property clashes between farmers and the biotechnology industry. The answer to Schmeiser’s “Who owns Life?” question will determine the future of our food system. (from the Porte Parole website) Join us for evening performances Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. On Thursday, you can catch a matinee performance at 11:30 a.m. Tickets are available for purchase online.
