Thunder Bay company Superior Anti-Theatre offers up a drama designed to expose Canada’s financial regulators as inadequate, compromised, corrupt, or all of the above.

A Sierra Leone emigré (Sistah Lois) and an investment-company branch manager (Rachel Donaldson) earn the wrath of the suits by asking inconvenient questions, forcing a showdown.

Scripted by A.I. Tolvanen, the play, based on a true story, is an 80-minute mess, but it comes as close to any fringe production in recent memory to a classic piece of Depression-era workers theatre. At one point, the cast of 10 take to the stage, waving signs with slogans such as “1% Pay Your Rent.”

Still, it has its charm, mostly encompassed by Sistah Lois. A winning, natural actress, she is this drama’s island of humanity in a sea of agit-prop.
