Inspired by an event in British Columbia that shattered the public's confidence in the police - the 2007 Tasering death of Robert Dziekanski during his arrest at the Vancouver airport - The Valley dramatizes the volatile relationship between law enforcement and people in the grip of mental illness. In addressing this fraught relationship, award-winning playwright Joan MacLeod empathizes with both parties, each of whom is guided by good intentions but equally challenged by their own cultural biases and flawed humanity.
