New Production Uprooted
a love letter to the land…
Written and directed by Valerie Methot with youth writers/actors Haley Christenson, Rylan Adriano, Charles Campbell, Fox Hunt, Ben Gauthier, Mitch Broome, Ron MacGillivray, Ciara Wilkinson, John Aung and Veronica Johns.
Three friends on an annual camping trip must suddenly face down a threat to the BC forest they love. Will they take a stand for future generations and protect what they view as sacred?
Uprooted stems from conversations with over a hundred diverse youth who say they are anxious about climate change. Uprooted is a theatrical multi-media production that strengthens response to climate change and promotes mental health management.

Uprooted exists within a growing movement. Young people worldwide inspired by 16-year-old Greta Thunberg are raising their voices to demand climate action from world leaders. At the September 2019 climate strike and October Rally, Some Assembly stood in solidarity with youth climate activists including Sustainabiliteens, Greta Thunberg, 15 young people who are suing the federal government over climate inaction and Indigenous land defenders who’ve long been on the frontlines defending Mother Earth.
Some Assembly Theatre Company is in its 19th year of collaboratively creating and producing original plays that promote awareness, dialogue and positive social change about issues facing young people. The company is the recipient of the City of Vancouver Youth Award for outstanding contribution to the youth community and the Deryck Thomson Award for exceptional contribution to community building and wellbeing.
