Not yet rated | write a review
Seeds presents an intelligent portrait of farming and scientific communities in conflict. Part courtroom drama and part social satire, Seeds documents the 2004 Supreme Court of Canada showdown between Saskatchewan farmer Percy Schmeiser and biotech multinational Monsanto Inc. In question is the legitimacy of patenting genetically modified food crops. The play takes us back to the seminal moment when a single farmer stood up to internationalagribusiness and almost won. Large ensemble cast.
