Looking back on Calgary in the 1960s and 1970s, join Sage Theatre as it explores the complexity of history, love, and Everett Klippert, the last person to be tried, convicted, and jailed for homosexuality in Canada.

When Maxine, a young historian, discovers Everett’s case, she becomes consumed with finding out who he really was. A story that shares the struggle to define Klippert, beyond what history wants and needs him to be, the piece was originally commissioned by Third Street Theatre and the Calgary Gay History Project.

Legislating Love: The Everett Klippert Story runs March 22 to 31, 2018 at the West Village Theatre (2007 10th Ave. SW).
