UP NEXT Artist PITCH - APAP - NYC

Playwright Annabel Soutar will present Seeds at the UP NEXT Artist PITCH session at APAP:
Friday, January 12th, from 1pm – 3pm

Seeds is Annabel Soutar’s hit documentary play about the four-year legal battle between feisty Saskatchewan farmer Percy Schmeiser and Monsanto Inc. Based on court trial transcripts, interviews with Schmeiser, Monsanto representatives, and with farmers, academics, lawyers and scientists, Seeds leads us through a suspenseful labyrinth of legal conflicts around patent rights, scientific showdowns about GM food, and property clashes between farmers and the biotechnology industry.

While debates about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) escalate around the world, Seeds provides its audience with an entertaining platform to become informed about how GMOs were introduced into the North American food supply.
