Plaintiff James X confronts the defendants, Church and State, for injustices they perpetrated throughout his childhood. While awaiting his trial, James examines his confidential state files compiled over the previous 45 years, and takes us on a journey through the schools, courts, health boards, industrial schools, psychiatric hospitals, and prisons.

Artistic Director Gemma Whelan will introduce the play, actor Todd Van Voris will read a short scene, and then Gemma , Todd and special guest Rene Denfeld will discuss issues raised by the play and invite questions and comments from the audience.
