There will be seven performances of the play "Southesk in the Bad Hills" at the Ancient Echoes Interpretive Centre in Herschel.

It is being put on to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the R.M. of Mountain View and the 150th anniversery of Lord Southesk's visit to Saskatchewan.

Debra Aiken, program co-ordinator of the Ancient Echoes Interpretive Centre in Herschel, explained that the play re-enacts Southesk's plains grizzly bear hunt in the Bad Hills just outside of Herschel. The audience travels back in time to learn about the hunt and about the first settlers to come to the Herschel area.

Aiken added that it is a walking play that takes place on top of the Coal Mine ravine just outside of Herschel. Audience members are encouraged to wear good walking shoes for the performance. Call 377-2045 for more information.
