To See or Not To See on VocalEye, a Described Play by Ruth Bieber

To CCB BC-Yukon Division Members and Friends,

Hello, sending you an unique opportunity to hear one of our own; Ruth Bieber’s play “To See or Not To See” will be featured on VocalEye’s Almost Live on Wednesday evening March 10, 2021 via Zoom.

Born in 1956, playwright Ruth Bieber second daughter of post World War II immigrant parents begins life in rural Alberta.  The farm life, her Father’s dream, holds devastating consequences for the six-week old infant, her Mother, and ultimately the family as a whole.  Bieber’s filmed-version ensemble production takes us into the story of one woman’s courageous and soul-searching journey of adventure, discovery, and ultimate forgiveness.  The memoir, although intensely personal, is universal in its dramatic and historic appeal.  The production uses the magic of the Vision quest as circular motif.

Complete with verbal description for blind viewers, join VocalEye Almost Live Events, showcasing Bieber’s FILMED-VERSION play on March 10, Wednesday at 6:30 PM PST/7:30 PM MST.  To receive the VocalEye zoom link for all their accessible, virtual weekly arts events, send an email to:
