Event Description

Discovery: A Comic Lament – Orlando, FL

Discovery: A Comic Lament, is coming to Orlando, FL on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 at 9:15 pm at the Mennonite Church USA convention, Orange County Convention Center! You must be registered for the convention in order to attend.

Introducing the most recent addition to the Ted & Co family of plays! Discovery: A Comic Lament, starring Ted Swartz and Michelle Milne, is a play about the Doctrine of Discovery, the legal framework that justifies theft of land and oppression of Indigenous Peoples. It finds unexpected humor at the crossroads of justice and land use, offering both comic and challenging glimpses into the absurdity of white settler oppression of Indigenous Peoples and the land we live on. A show about love, and loss, of land, Discovery nudges us to question our stories with honesty and integrity. Starring Ted Swartz and Michelle Milne.

Created in partnership with the Dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery Coalition, produced by Ted & Co, directed by Phil Weaver-Stoesz, and written by Alison Brookins.
