    Who owns life?

    Named the Best English Production of 2005 by the Association Québécoise des critiques de Théâtre (AQCT) and nominated for Best Original Script in 2005 by the Académie québécoise de théâtre, Seeds is arresting documentary theatre chronicling the 4-year legal battle between Saskatchewan farmer Percy Schmeiser and biotech giant Monsanto Inc. Monsanto accused Schmeiser of growing their genetically patented Round-up Ready canola seeds on his property without paying the licensing fee they require. Based on court trial transcripts and interviews with all the players, including Schmeiser, Monsanto representatives, farmers, academics, lawyers and scientists from across Canada, Seeds takes us behind the scenes of the battle for the future of food.
