Voices of the Land: The Seed Savers and Other Plays

26 Jun 2012 11:30 AM | Anonymous
The land and those who live in intimate terms with it are the focus of Koller's plays. In The Seed Savers, Joe faces pressure to purchase genetically modified seed; Jeanie refuses to sell untilled land for development in Cowboy Boots and a Corsage; Abby sees a lake as her final resting place in Abby's Place; and in The Early Worm Club, Millie realizes a deep sense of belonging to the Alberta parkland and its birds while searching for her mate. Nature goes beyond mere setting and backdrop in these plays to effect transformation and resolution on the characters. Ranging from romantic comedy to drama and from one-act to full-length, the plays in Voices of the Land show western Canadians at the point of leaving, returning, and renewing against the backdrop of their native landscape.
