Vancouver actor and interdisciplinary theatre maker Patrick Keating presents his searing autobiographical work, Inside/Out, a captivating one-person theatre piece about Keating’s nearly ten year journey in, out, and through the revolving doors of the Canadian Criminal Justice System. As Keating searches through his own penitentiary files he shares the memories these files evoke: memories of outside, memories of choices made, his introduction to drugs, his introduction to crime. Inside/Out is the story of the people he met behind penitentiary walls who influenced his life, leading to his eventual transfer from Quebec during the tension filled time of the first referendum to Matsqui Penitentiary in British Columbia – where he enrolled in a theatre course and discovered the possibility of a new way of life.
Keating’s honest and engaging delivery of his stirring true story makes it impossible not to be caught up in this play about a search for community: the community of the street, the community of prison, and the community of theatre.
