Roseneath Theatre presents Tough Case
A courtroom drama without the courtroom
Tough Case is a powerful vehicle for the community to learn about and understand restorative practices. The play is an invitation for the audience to think, feel and challenge existing assumptions about justice, retribution, the role of the community in nurturing and protecting members, the need for dialogue and negotiation in dealing with all community members: both victims and those who bring harm.
The stage play was written by award winning playwright David S. Craig and was commissioned by Professor Jennifer Llewelyn, a world authority on restorative justice and the director of the Nova Scotia Restorative Justice Community University Research Association (NSRJ-CURA).
Based in Toronto, Roseneath Theatre is a not-for-profit charitable organization that educates and promotes the public's appreciation of the arts by providing theatrical performances in educational institutions, community centres and public places.
Wilfrid Laurier University is hosting two performances of Tough Case:
Monday, March 12, 7:30 PM

Each performance is approximately one hour, followed by a 20 minute Q&A facilitated by Community Justice Initiatives.
Where: Faculty of Social Work, 120 Duke Street West, Kitchener, Room 101.
Cost: There is no admission fee, but a small donation is welcome to help the theatre cover its costs. This event is open to everyone. Registration is not necessary.
