Fringe Festival '09: Frances-Anne Solomon's LOCKDOWN

The Cast of "Lockdown" playing at this year's Toronto Fringe Theatre Festival.

Lockdown

presented by Leda Serene films from Toronto, ON

Frances-Anne Solomon’s new play Lockdown, takes us into the new world of some inner city Canadian high schools.  Post "lockdown", how will students behave under a new set of rules and the constant presence of armed police officers in their hallways and classrooms? Schools used to be a safe haven for students, but how will some of them now function when they are exposed to violence in their homes, community and, now, school?  We peer into the lives of several young people, moving with them from classroom to living room as answers are revealed. As adults, our own culpability is also in question as we watch this play unfold. Please bring some young people with you to see this play. The young cast is incredibly natural, and legendary Jamaican actress Leonie Forbes is at her usual best. Tickets are $10 each.
