Cherry Docs by David Gow

Finalist for the Chalmers Play Award
A neo-Nazi skinhead is charged with murder, and Legal Aid has assigned him a Jewish lawyer. Over the course of developing a defense for the skinhead, the lawyer is forced to examine the limits of his own liberalism, and the demons underlying it. An unblinking examination of hatred, the explosive effect it has on our society, and the hurdles that confront us as we set about eradicating it.

Male roles: 2

“… a provocative exploration of the inescapable and insidious presence of hatred in our society.” —Toronto Star

“Gow’s belief that we must confront the hatred within ourselves and our society [is] troubling, touching and convincing.” —Globe & Mail
