To See or Not to See; Homecoming
TO SEE OR NOT TO SEE; HOMECOMING
A One Woman Play by Ruth Bieber
Sound by Shirley Cameron
Born in 1956, playwright Ruth Bieber second daughter of post World War II immigrant parents begins life in rural Alberta. The farm life, her Father’s dream, holds devastating consequences for the six-week old infant, her Mother, and ultimately the family as a whole. Bieber’s multimedia, solo show takes us into the story of one woman’s courageous and soul-searching journey of adventure, discovery, and ultimate forgiveness. The memoir, although intensely personal, is universal in its dramatic and historic appeal.
Ruth Bieber is the mother of two adult sons, has a Master’s degree in education, has a long history in the theatre, is an enthusiastic traveler and paints pictures, one of which is currently on display at the Chamber of Commerce.
She is also blind.
In April Bieber will be presenting a one-woman theatrical production, To See or Not to See: Homecoming. Audiences will be encouraged, but not required, to wear blindfolds so they can be fully immersed into Bieber’s sightless world. As an option, she offers people who attend the first performance the opportunity to attend the second show if they want the sighted experience as a follow-up for no additional charge.
Show is 1 hour duration, followed by post-show discussion
