The Rebel of Hungerford - written and performed by Mark Lesage; Presented by the Tweed & Area Arts Council.

The young colony was going through some serious growing pains that eventually erupted into open Rebellion. History seems to have made little of this affair. But if you look a little more closely you will find that political dissatisfaction was widespread and particularly violent in our own area. Pierre Lesage was one of those early settlers who were caught in the middle of the turmoil. Arrested for treason, he is eventually acquitted with the help of a young lawyer by the name of John A. MacDonald. Pierre recounts his experiences and, in doing so, helps us to consider the legal foundation of a colony and the role of those who saw themselves as ordained to rule, and those who find that rule contrary to their principles of justice. This play is dedicated to Mark's father, Jim Lesage, who taught him to always root for the underdog. Please be aware! This is not an objective historical narration. Pierre will recount his experiences complete with all the sectarian and political prejudices of the age. His opinions are not necessarily those of the author.

Admission Fee:$12/ T&AAC Members & Students $10
