Canada Scene continues to showcase different Canadian stories, talents and experiences this weekend with its special presentation of Nova Scotia-based Mulgrave Road Theatre’s critically acclaimed play The West Woods. The play, set in rural Nova Scotia in 1968, focuses on the life and struggles of a Black Nova Scotian family during an era where racism and sexism was still rampant, but social change was on the horizon.

Ottawa Life had the chance to chat with Mulgrave Road Theatre’s artistic director, and the director of The West Woods, Emmy Alcorn before the play’s big Ottawa premiere this Friday.
