History Play Created and Performed by Students of the History and Drama Department

Only two weeks left to see "The Lockup," a one-act drama that recreates the late 19th-century experience of several characters who spent time in the Kingston police cells in the basement of City Hall. The site-specific play, which has been running since late May, is created and performed by the Cellar Door Project, a group of History/Drama students from Queen's. The characters in the play and the details of their lives were inspired by an archival research project in Kingston police/court records undertaken by students in Steven Maynard's seminar on Canadian social history. The play represents an original, student-created effort to popularize the Canadian past. For more information,
