"The ideas of the ruling class are the ruling ideas of any epoch" - Karl Marx 



Jesse Byiers, Pam Johnson and Thomas McKechnie invite you to the Imperial Pub and Library November 9th to hear a reading of Canada's political provocateur playwright par excelense David Fennario's self-described, "Deadly Serious Comedy", Bolsheviki. 

Bolsheviki is the story of a young reporter and his encounter with a veteran of the Battle of the Vimy Ridge in a bar in Montreal on Remembrance Day. What follows is a part of the secret history of Canada. A history in which not everyone was ready to die for "God, King and Country", a history in which voices of dissent are brutally silenced, a history that is yearly whitewashed in the rhetoric of "supreme sacrifice". 



The reading will take approximately one hour and everyone is invited to stay after the performance to talk.
