Welcome!
 
This will be our 48th year of performances for "The Trial of Louis Riel".  We are the second longest running play in Canada next to "Anne of Green Gables".  John Coulter wrote the play as part of a Centennial project in 1967.  It's based on the actual transcripts of the famous "Trial of Louis Riel", in Regina, SK of 1885.  The issues surrounding the trial, such as: justice, land, language, race, and religion are all still very much alive today.
 
The play is performed for one week in May for all of the schools in Saskatchewan for a total of 4 shows.  As well, there are 3 weeks of performances in the summer for the public.  These are the last 2 weeks of July and 1st week of August for a total of 9 shows, approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes long.  All performances are in the Shumiatcher Theatre, at the Mackenzie Art Gallery in Regina, SK. 
 
Everyone is invited to stay after the show to ask questions or take pictures of the actors or with the actors.
