Title: Maple Keys
Author: Dale, Jeffrey W.

Abstract: Maple Keys is a play inspired by events surrounding the Robert Pickton case in Vancouver. The play begins with the disappearance of Helen, a sex worker in Vancouver's East End and her daughter Maple’s consequent move to rural Ontario to live with her grandmother and uncle. The play's setting is the farming community of Listowel, Ontario, with flashbacks to Maple’s life in Vancouver. The Listowel area is an apt setting for striking a balance between urban and rural life, allowing Maple to experience feelings of displacement and culture shock. The play's form takes shape through Maple's journey as she addresses the audience directly, and deals with her encounters with the people she must now call family.
