An exclusive preview of the new, short audio play In The Dumps, by Shauntay Grant.

Presented in association with the Africville Museum and The Ecology Action Centre.

In the wake of the Africville apology, a father enlists his eleven-year-old son in an act of illegal dumping to challenge decades of environmental racism in their rural Black Nova Scotian community. Their banter moves between playful and serious as they discuss ways of bringing about meaningful change.

In The Dumps, is part of the nine episode series “Climate Change and Other Small Talk”. As part of this exclusive pre-listening event, audiences will be treated to another selection from the series, Rolling Hills by Carmen Aguirre, produced in Vancouver by Electric Company Theatre.
