Peace Country


Two sisters, five friends, a lifetime of knowing each other. What happens when the people who know you better than yourself are the ones losing their livelihoods for the sake of your cause? Peace Country is a new piece of theatre set in the Peace River Area of British Columbia. Inspired by the experience of playwright Pedro Chamale’s growing-up in Chetwynd, BC, the play is an examination of intercultural friendship, the realities of northern living and how our northern communities can be vilified by Southern urban Canadian centers for simply trying to provide for one’s family. Peace Country is the result of Pedro’s love for the region that he grew up in and the concern for it as climate change affects the whole world not just BC’s south coast.

​Presented by the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. Produced by rice & beans theatre in partnership with Playwrights Theatre Centre. Created with support from the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival.
