The Steven Truscott story is familiar to many Canadians, going back over 40+ years when a young teenager (Truscott) was wrongfully accused of killing his female classmate, and sentenced to hang – this goes back to 1959.

Over the ensuing years, well…if I tell you everything here, that may discourage you from going to see the show – so I won’t 🙂

However, I did sit down and chat with Louis B. Hobson, a noted reviewer, playwright and in this case – co-director for Steven: The Steven Truscott Story, a play that makes a return to Calgary at Workshop Theatre over the next few days.

Listen to my podcast interview, and read the feature that appeared in my Calgary Herald blog. He also sheds considerable light in his own column.

In addition, I recently sat down with two actors that portray Mr. Truscott over the length of those 40+ years, Ciaran Volke and Fred Krysko.

Watch that video interview on my YouTube channel. Apologies, I was using new gear and the low light conditions made the resulting video grainy, even having been shot in HD…

I’ll have a review once I’ve been to see the show!!
