Community Action Theater on Tour

Top of page

A group of welfare recipients from British Columbia choose theatre to express their discontent with the welfare system and the general attitudes persisting toward those receiving social assistance. On a tour of Vancouver Island, the 'actors' perform skits before a variety of audiences--and the audiences react. A film for those interested in using theatre as a tool in organizing for social change.
