Innocence Lost
A Play About Steven Truscott

BY BEVERLEY COOPER
DIRECTED BY ROY SURETTE
FEATURING THE NAC ENGLISH THEATRE ACTING COMPANY
Centaur Theatre Company / National Arts Centre co-production

SYNOPSIS

Shifting testimonies cloud the truth.
Justice gone terribly wrong.

In the summer of 1959, a sleepy town in rural Ontario was rocked by a tragedy that changed the community forever and sent shockwaves around the world. A 12-year-old girl named Lynne Harper was found raped and strangled to death. Days later, 14-year-old Steven Truscott was charged with her murder. After a two week trial by jury, the boy was found guilty and sentenced to hang, making him the youngest person to sit on Canada's death row. The riveting and poignant true story is seen through the eyes of a fictional character named Sarah, a fellow classmate of Steven and Lynne's as she deals with her own loss of innocence, her world turned upside down and a personal journey to find truth and justice. The play examines the nature of community and how good people make bad choices. Finalist for the 2009 Governor General's Award for Fiction..

Innocence Lost Production Diary

During the month of January sketch artist Marc Taro Holmes will attend rehearsals with his sketchpad. He’ll be drawing live while the actors go about the work of building the characters and story. The drawings are both a document of the actors at work, and a visualization of the story they conjure from the page.
