The Harris Center is proud to present an evening of documentary theater. The seven-year legal battle between Saskatchewan farmer Percy Schmeiser and Monsanto Inc. — one of the largest biotechnology corporations in the world—sets the stage for a fascinating look at the food we eat. Based on court trial transcripts, interviews with Percy Schmeiser, Monsanto representatives, and with farmers, academics, lawyers and scientists from all across Canada, Seeds leads us through a suspenseful labyrinth of legal conflicts around patent rights, scientific showdowns about GM food, and property clashes between farmers and the biotechnology industry. An evening of “impeccable performances, dynamic design, and swift pacing” (The Coast) seeks to answer Schmeiser’s query of “who owns life?” — the question at the center of the work — which, all in all, leads to an evening of “great journalism, and even better theater” (Montreal Gazette).
