For the past year, Jessica has been developing a new Yukon verbatim show via her company Open Pit Theatre. The first draft of this new work was presented as a staged reading in Whitehorse, YT on March 28 & 29, 2015. The company is now heading into a second round of territorial interviews to visit the rural communities that were missed on the first round. It is a compelling piece that touches on life and land in the Yukon today. Yukonners of all ages, race, and age speak about the issues and beauty that exist in their world up north. Mining, discrimination, land claims, territorial identity, and home are some of the themes they will be touching on in this new play. Stay tuned for a premier of the play scheduled for Spring 2017.
