Beneath Springhill: The Maurice Ruddick Story by Beau Dixon
Beneath Springhill: The Maurice Ruddick Story by Beau Dixon will be performed from September 28th to October 8th. Beneath Springhill chronicles the life of Maurice Ruddick, an African Canadian who survived the historic mining disaster in Springhill, Nova Scotia in 1958. Created and performed by Beau Dixon, this one-man show recalls the events of seven miners trapped one mile beneath a small mining town, the effect it had on their rural Canadian community, and the racial tension that surfaced as a result.
