The December Man won the Governor General’s Award for Drama in 2007 and is inspired by one of the most tragic and significant incidents in our country’s history, the École Polytechnique Massacre on Dec 6th, 1989. The play deals with the fate of a bystander who witnessed the event and could/did not act. The December Man is the story of how he and his family were tragically affected. For those of us who remember it vividly, this play helps us to understand the terrible aftermath that still lives with us. For a generation that wasn’t born when it took place, The December Man is a revelatory experience. With mass shootings on the rise and gender-based domestic violence at an all-time high during Covid-19, this examination of ‘the bystander effect’ in The December Man is startlingly relevant to Nova Scotians and beyond.
