Reasonable Doubt by Joel Bernbaum, Lancelot Knight & Yvette Nolan
Reasonable Doubt is a verbatim play with original music about the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Saskatchewan, with a focus on the killing of Colten Boushie and the trail of Gerald Stanley. Interviewer Joel Bernbaum conducted over 200 interviews with people across Saskatchewan and then worked with Director/Dramaturge Yvette Nolan to edit the interview transcripts and weave them with court transcripts from the Gerald Stanley trial. Composer Lancelot Knight created original music inspired by and using quotes from both sets of transcripts. The play uses the court transcripts as a container for the feelings and opinions of a wide range of Saskatchewan residents.
First produced by Persephone Theatre, Saskatoon SK, 2020
