Written in 1989 by Ian McKechnie and Guy Rouleau, La Dernière Pendaison tells the story of two individuals who, struggling with the devastating impact of the economic crisis of the thirties, adopt an innovative solution to make ends meet.
The representation is played in two acts: the first in a marquee and the 2nd in our very own courtroom. It is the oldest one in Ontario and is still in use to this day. Through a partnership with the Ministry of the Attorney General of Ontario, we are able to present the trial scene in our magnificent courtroom, which held the actual trial in 1932. It is a part of our heritage and we are greatly proud of it.
The Troupe des non-coupables is a local group of volunteers; their share of the profits is donated to local charities for children and senior citizens.
It is also possible to have dinner in one of our cellblocks before attending an event. No forks or knives allowed! Guests will have to eat with a spoon just like the inmates used to do.
It is mandatory to book and pay in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door.
