Written by Halifax North End playwright Tara Taylor, ‘Viola’ reflects on the famous activist’s entire life not just her arrest at the Roseland Theatre for sitting in an all-whites section. The play follows two sisters, Rayna and Amiah as they uncover Viola’s path from a successful businesswoman to the mother of the Canadian civil rights movement.
