This powerful play is being performed in a Hamilton park all month

A new play by an award-winning Hamilton playwright is seeing its premiere in a unique production that takes place entirely outdoors.

Blackberry, produced by Hamilton’s Red Betty Theatre, is the latest play by Radha S. Menon: a local artist known for works that speak to the experience of racialized communities.

This new work is no different, telling a timely story centering a group of IBPOC (Indigenous, Black, People of Colour) youth whose routine escape to a derelict city park is turned upside down when the body of a murdered girl is discovered.

A 90-minute play exploring the ongoing impacts of systemic racism and police brutality, Blackberry is directed by Alison Wong and features a cast of young up-and-coming local talent including Jason Chung, Molly Mutch, Paul Smith, and Rylan Bomberry.

Blackberry runs until August 21st in a site-specific production within Hamilton’s own Carter Park at 32 Stinson Avenue. Tickets and details are available on the Red Betty Theatre website.
