Fringe (Edmonton) “Invisible Child: Leilani Muir and the Alberta Eugenics Board” – MAA & PAA Theatre

In 1995, Leilani Muir launched one of the greatest David and Goliath battles of our history, suing the province for wrongful confinement and sterilization. Her lawsuit exploded into a class action lawsuit, provoked a constitutional challenge and lead to an international debate over our history of eugenic policies. MAA & PAA Theatre (Firing Lines ’11, Unmarried Wife ’10, Letters from Battle River ’07) weaves her story together with a frank and sometimes funny examination of new waves in eugenics.

Invisible Child is directed by Vincent Forcier, and features Randy Brososky, Linda Grass and Jenny McKillop. It is written by David Cheoros, with Leilani O’Malley and LM Morin.
