Isolated Incident by Stephen Orlov with Rahul Varma
ISOLATED INCIDENT is an agit-prop play inspired to commemorate the first anniversary of Montreal's most tumultuous racial incident: the 1987 slaying of an unarmed black youth, Anthony Griffin, by a MUC police officer. The critically acclaimed play opened in the midst of a controversial police inquiry and impending civil trial of officer Alain Gosset. After a sell-out run at McGill's Moyse Hall, the play went on to win the Special Juror's Award of the 1989 Quebec Drama Festival at the Centaur Theatre. ISOLATED INCIDENT depicts fictional characters and is not a re-enactment of an actual event.
