The Raymur Mothers – They Wouldn’t Take No For An Answer

On Oct 29, a dramatized version of the inspiring story of the Militant Mothers of Raymur will premiere in a musical play
Wednesday, October 29, 2014 - Sunday, November 9, 2014

Forty-three years ago, a group of single mothers in an East Vancouver housing project carried out one of the most iconic and successful feats of direct action in Vancouver history, blockading and shutting down all rail traffic to the Port of Vancouver in a desperate measure to ensure their children’s safety.

On Oct 29, a dramatized version of their inspiring story will premiere in a musical play, The Raymur Mothers – They Wouldn’t Take No For An Answer.

Featuring 13 original songs, the play is brought to you by Theatre In The Raw, the same people who created Bruce-The Musical and Yippies In Love.

The show runs until November 9 at the Russian Hall, 600 Campbell, as part of the 11th annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival.
