The Personal History of Doc – Photo Essay by Jane Spidell

Jane Spidell appears in Soulpepper’s production of Sharon Pollock’s Doc, and has recently performed in The Africa Trilogy, Volcano Theatre’s acclaimed three-part play for the Luminato Festival.

Fredericton is actually my hometown – I was ten when I left – but I still have memories of it, and it happens to be the city where Doc takes place. As luck would have it, I was driving out to New Brunswick for a few days and I asked Sharon Pollock about places I could take pictures of – any places where ghosts are still walking around.
