Discovery: A Comic Lament
March 3, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Lima Mennonite Church will host a performance of Discovery: A Comic Lament on Saturday, March 3, at 7 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. Lima Mennonite Church is located at 1318 N. Main St., Lima.
The play, starring Ted Swartz and Michelle Milne, and produced by Ted & Co, is about the Doctrine of Discovery, the legal framework that justifies theft of land and oppression of Indigenous Peoples. It finds unexpected humor at the crossroads of justice and land use, offering both comic and challenging glimpses into the absurdity of white settler oppression of Indigenous Peoples and the land we live on. A show about love, and loss, of land, Discovery nudges us to question our stories with honesty and integrity.

To hear Ted Swartz and Alison Brookins, author of the play, talk about Discovery: A Comic Lament, listen to the Ohio Conference Cast podcast about the Doctrine of Discovery recorded at the MC USA Convention in Orlando last summer.
