This work is one of a series we're presenting in recognition of Canada's 150th Anniversary and the recommendations from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The series explores the relationship between the Indigenous peoples and the settlers in Canada from different perspectives. Also included in the series is the premiere of Gail Anderson-Dargatz's incredible novel The Cure for Death by Lightning. The (RE)Imagine Series, April to May 2017, will feature additional readings and events with the aim of inspiring dialogue, understanding and change.
A moving and surprisingly funny story of two sisters finding a way to each other. Grace, an Indigenous girl adopted by a white family, is asked by her birth sister to return to the reserve for their mother’s funeral. Afraid of opening old wounds, Grace must find a place where the culture of her past can feed the truth of her present.
Produced in association with Thousand Islands Playhouse, Gananoque.
"A combination of heartache and hilarity that works wonderfully."
