A Black Theatre Workshop and Prairie Theatre Exchange Co-Production

World Premiere!


by Donna-Michelle St.Bernard

There are those who stand apart by merit of the work they do – whether they want to or not. Three gravediggers make the best of a bad situation as townsfolk grow increasingly distant.

Abdul and Solomon introduce newbie Bai to the intricacies and dignity of gravedigging for the town down the hill. But when illness hits the town, the three must make the best of a bad situation as their workload increases and their support from the community diminishes. Full of song, laughter, tears and beautiful humanity, Diggers is a tribute to essential workers.

Bai – Jahlani Gilbert-Knorren 
Abdul – Chance Jones 
Solomon – Christian Paul 
Sheila – Warona Setshwaelo
