The Chemical Valley Project

April 4 - 20, 2019

Broadleaf Theatre

Creator(s): Kevin Matthew Wong & Julia Howman with dramaturgy and advisement by Vanessa Gray and Lindsay Beze Gray

Directed by:
Kevin Matthew Wong and Julia Howman

Featuring:
Kevin Matthew Wong

The Aamjiwnaang First Nations reserve & its 900 residents are smothered by one of Canada's largest petrochemical corridors: the Chemical Valley. Siblings Vanessa Gray & Lindsay Gray have dedicated themselves to fighting the pollution threatening their community’s health, safety, & future. In an innovative combination of projections design, docu-theatre, and a talkative solo performance by Kevin Matthew Wong, The Chemical Valley Project explores environmentalism and reconciliation today.

I highly recommend seeing this show for the important reality it exposes. To its diligent creators: thank you.
