MINI REVIEW

Coopers 2008 play cracks open the 1959 small-town Ontario cold case of a 12-year-old girl and the 14-year-old classmate later convicted of her murder and sentenced to death in what many came to see as a miscarriage of justice. Positioning the audience as detective, judge and jury, Coopers detail-rich account of the investigation, trial and aftermath dramatizes testimony from friends, family and neighbours as they relate their diverging memories, opinions and shifting conclusions of guilt or innocence.
