Special performance coming to Kootenay Gallery

One-woman show, To See or Not to See; Homecoming, will be performed by Creston resident, Ruth Bieber

There will be an exciting new dramatic performance to see – or not – this September at the Kootenay Gallery of Art. The one-woman show, To See or Not to See; Homecoming, was written and is performed by Creston resident, Ruth Bieber.

Born in 1956, playwright Ruth Bieber, second daughter of post World War II immigrant parents begins life in rural Alberta. The farm life, her father’s dream, holds devastating consequences for the six-week old infant, her mother, and ultimately the family as a whole.

Bieber’s intimate, multimedia solo show takes us into the story of one woman’s courageous and soul-searching journey of adventure, discovery, and ultimate forgiveness. The memoir, although intensely personal, is universal in its dramatic and historic appeal.

Join Bieber and musician Mario Melisse for this production. The show is one hour in duration, followed by a post-show discussion. There will be two productions of this show, one on Saturday, September 15 at 7 p.m. and one on Sunday, September 16 at 2 p.m.

The purchase of a ticket includes admittance to both showings. Attendees will have the option of experiencing the play blindfolded during one show and not blindfolded during the other.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students ages 16 and up only. They can be purchased in advance from the Kootenay Gallery or at the door. Please note, tickets can be paid for by cash or cheque only, with cheques made out to Ruth Bieber.

Thank you to sponsors Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance and Columbia Basin Trust for their financial support of this production.

The Kootenay Gallery is located at 120 Heritage Way in Castlegar. It is across the road from the airport, next to the Doukhobor Discovery Centre. For more information, contact 250 365 3337, email or check the website at
