The Sault Theatre Workshop is bringing God and the Indian to Sault Ste. Marie.
“While panhandling outside a coffee shop, Johnny, a Cree woman (played by Carolyn Hepburn) who lives on the streets, is shocked to recognize a face from her childhood, which was spent in a residential school. Desperate to hear the man acknowledge the terrible abuse he inflicted on her and other children at the school, Johnny follows Anglican bishop George King (played by Chuck Holgate) to his office to confront him,” a description of the play explains.
This play, written by Ojibwe playwright and author Drew Hayden Taylor and directed by Randi Houston–Jones, explores the process of healing via dialogue, exploring what is possible when the abused meets the abuser and is given a free forum for expression.
The performance takes place at the Sault Theatre Workshop, located at 121 Pittsburgh Ave, from Wed., May 22 – Sat., May 25 at 8 p.m. and on Sun., May 26 at 2 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased at the Sault Community Box Office in the Station Mall, online at www.Saultctc.ca or at the door.
