About the show
Arguably the printing press was the invention of the millennium – in which case it has a great deal to answer for. Coached by Tim Maly and moderated by Misha Glouberman, Small Wooden Shoe debates the printing press and everything since — while trying to keep it useful, entertaining and above all, reasonable. With PowerPoint, a dot matrix printer and most likely some singing.

Gutenberg, Copernican, Newtonian, Darwinian, Industrial, Nuclear, Information – Small Wooden Shoe tackles one after another in the Dedicated to the Revolutions series. Bringing together lecture-demo, talent show and debating tournament, this is theatre that engages the audience in an honest, casual way while maintaining the need to step up and entertain.

Reasonable People, Reasonably Disagreeing brings together Small Wooden Shoe regulars Ame Henderson (Public Recordings, Clash) and Trevor Schwellnus (Aluna Theatre [Dora winner: Set Design], Public Recordings, Mammalian Diving Reflex), long time Halifax collaborator Dustin Harvey (Secret Theatre, Fire in the Hole, Dapopo) and new collaborators Evan Webber (One Reed Theatre) and Evalyn Parry (Independent Auntie Theatre, Buddies in Bad Times) with Small Wooden Shoe Artistic Director Jacob Zimmer.

After creating the Rhubarb! hit Do You Have Any Idea How Fast You Were Going? (“sly, fun [and] post-modern” – NOW Magazine) and Wave 2’s Connect the Dots (“inventive and form-breaking theatre . . . intelligently, comically and entertainingly.” – NOW Magazine), Small Wooden Shoe brings the third show in the Dedicated to the Revolutions series to Harbourfront Centre’s HATCH, taking on the Gutenberg Revolution – in the form of debate.
