1837 : The Farmers’ Revolt

A Play

by Rick Salutin

A play about the Upper Canada Rebellion of 1837 and the life of William Lyon Mackenzie, covering key events in the history of Canada.

An epic Canadian story about a rebellion, whose reverberations helped build the very Canada we know today. At its core, this is a play about farmers who distrust the government of the day, and rise up to take them down. Fighting against a class of entitled would-be aristocrats, the farmers in the play are frontier people, eager to break the bonds of tyranny, and forge their own country, free of British rule.
