Event Description

As a benefit in support of the Megan Newton Memorial Award in Theatre, Justin Carter revives his hit solo show, Son of Africville, in partnership with Intrepid Theatre for one performance, Friday June 21 at 8 pm at the Metro Studio. The play was originally read as part of Puente Theatre's Work Play, appeared as an Intrepid Theatre YOU Show, and then appeared in Uno Fest in 2011. Since then it has toured across Canada, including to the SuperNova festival in Halifax.

Son of Africville is an autobiographical story of a mother and son reuniting, after twenty years, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Their roots stem directly from historic Africville, the largest and oldest black community in Canada, until it was bulldozed back in the 1960s. It is the heartwarming story of a young man’s journey back to a mother who always loved him, but due to the harsh realities of life, paranoid
schizophrenia, and drug use, could not keep him. Performer/creator Justin Carter relives this reunion through story, and song, in a poignant and humorous performance.
