Immigration Acts

One Officer's Experiences by Arthur J. Vaughn
The Komagata Maru Incident by Sharon Pollock
Directed by Diana Lobb

Immigration Acts stages the Canadian split personality regarding immigration—priding ourselves on national multiculturalism, while sometimes being xenophobic, if not profoundly racist, when addressing "immigrant" issues—in two one act plays. The multicultural Canada is made to sit beside the racist Canada. The audience is placed in the position of negotiating between the generous, tolerant vision of Canada in "One Officer's Experiences" and the white supremacist, intolerant vision of Canada in "The Komagata Maru Incident."
