Charles Mosesian Theater
Approximately 90 minutes, with no intermission
When a Jewish lawyer is assigned to defend a young skinhead accused of brutally killing an immigrant man, he must alter his preconceived notion of humanity in order to discover forgiveness. In this New England Premiere, David Gow dares audiences to examine their capacity for compassion and asks, is there atonement for all crimes?
“…one of the most successful dramas in Canadian theatre history.”
LONDON EVENING STANDARD
“Cherry Docs is very provocative – the kind of theatre that gives you something to talk about afterwards.”
