Lawyer Play

Since 1999, Ottawa lawyers have given back to the community with the annual Lawyer Play. Working together with the Great Canadian Theatre Company, the play stars members of the legal community (along with special guests), to raise funds benefiting a local charity and to support the operations of the GCTC.

In honour of the 20th anniversary of the Lawyer Play, we're collecting memories and stories from people who have participated in the play. Click on the images below to read more!

Below is a list of all the past Lawyer Plays. Click on any poster to enlarge.
