Logic by Rod Macpherson
Vijay teaches Logic at a liberal arts college. He’s having anger-management problems. Or are his students setting him up? Is the college making a safe space for students to learn? Or practicing institutional racism? It depends on whose logic we believe. Read by Krishna Tailor, Kristi Hansen, Nimet Kanji, Morgan Donald, Natasha Prasad and Hunter Cardinal. Ken Agrell-Smith reads stage directions.
Rod Macpherson has been writing plays since the 80s. Some have appeared on CBC radio and in the Guelph University archive of Canadian Shakespeare adaptations. His short play Best4U was part of Sextet, a top-two show at the Saskatoon Fringe in August, and his full-length play Naked Tourist, Sacred Mountain was the second show of Saskatoon’s Live Five 2017-18 season in November. A second run is planned for Regina next April.
