This show was developed as a creative residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts in 2011. The Old Trouts are very grateful for their assistance, and also to everyone who attended the workshop performance of Ignorance.  And a special thanks as well to Quickdraw Animation Society, who helped a great deal with facilitating the animated sequences.
