To See or Not to See

To See or Not to See is a powerful story of wounding, overcoming, courage, and healing. Employing the circular motif of a shamanic quest as frame, Ruth Bieber’s first play is full of insight about what it’s like to have a vision disability as a child, a woman, a mother and a professional – and about the more hidden disabilities of those around her.

The play is dramatic, at times very humorous and at other points shocking.  Multiple themes are cleverly woven together resulting in a universal appeal for a broad audience. The story of one woman’s personal and revealing journey into her past; a journey that takes us into the light of life.

The Friday Oct. 21 performance starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Mary Irwin Theatre in the Rotary Centre for the Arts in Kelowna. It will include American Sign Language for members of the deaf community.

The Saturday Oct. 22, 2 p.m.matinee includes audio description for blind audience members. Both performances will be followed by a question and answer session with the playwright and others.

Tickets are $25 each, or $20 each for groups of six or more, and may be purchased directly from the RCA website, or call the RCA box office at 250-717-5304.
