Grand Theatre - Controlled Damage

On November 8, 1946, Black Nova Scotian, Viola Desmond walked into the Whites-only section of the Roseland Theatre in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. Unaware that the theatre was segregated, Viola took a seat on the main floor, instead of in the balcony where Black patrons were expected to sit. She was eventually arrested and dragged from the theatre.

In Controlled Damage, award-winning playwright Andrea Scott illuminates the story of Viola Desmond – a woman who took a stand against racial discrimination, by taking a seat at a theatre.

In conjunction with the Provincial mandate for theatres and many other public gathering places, all Grand Theatre patrons, staff, and artists will need to provide proof of being fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, with the final dose having been received at least 14 days prior to entry.

Children under 12, who are accompanied by an adult who meets the above vaccination requirements, will be allowed entry in accordance with the prevailing medical guidance at the time of the performance.
