The Acadia Performing Arts Series presents Inside/Out, a prison memoir by Patrick Keating at Festival Theatre in Wolfville on Saturday, March 17 at 7:30; a production by Neworld Theatre in association with Main Street Theatre and Urban Crawl.

Patrick is kind, soft-spoken and sincere. Inside/Out is his real-life story of years spend in and out of Canada's penitentiary system. And that's the thing - you look at Patrick and think, 'this guy robbed a bank?' Patrick's honest and engaging delivery of his funny, sad, and stirring true story helps dismantle our ideas of what a 'criminal' looks like - and helps us better understand how language, race and class play a very real part in our lives as Canadians. It's about a man's search for community: the community of the street, the community of prison, and of the theatre.

Written and Preformed by Patrick Keating / Directed and Dramaturged by Stephan Malloy / Sound Design by Noah Drew / Lighting Design by Jaylene Pratt / Set, Props, and Costume Design by Barbara Clayden / Stage manager: Sandy Cumberland
