The Justice Theatre is presenting free one hour performances in Cranbrook at the Cranbrook Public Library, in the atrium, at 6 pm Monday May 13th and in Kimberley at Centre 64 at 10:30 am Tuesday May 14th.

This is courtesy of the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy as part of their Welcoming Communities initiative.   It is a creative way of introducing immigrants and the general public to the way our system of law works. CBAL has recently opened an immigrant welcome centre at the Kimberley Public Library and in July will open a similar office in Cranbrook. This is made possible through funding from the Federal Government of Canada and the Government of British Columbia.

Justice Theatre is a presentation of the Peoples Law School of Vancouver. The performance will connect Canada’s justice system to the lives of audience members by making its principles more understandable and by demonstrating that the law is there to help people who are victims of crime.
