Cottagers and Indians by Drew Hayden Taylor

August 11 @ 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:00 pm, repeating until August 11, 2022

Comedy/Political Satire

Maureen loves her cottage. She and her husband worked hard for it. A long dock, a glass of chardonnay, sunset, bbqs. She can’t wait to teach her grandkids to waterski in the wide open channel.

Arthur loves wild rice.  He worked hard to learn from the elders in his community: how to grow and tend manoomin in long beds all over that same wide open channel. Canoe, sunset, a bucket of KFC. He can’t wait to reclaim the lakebed with sacred rice.

Ummm….Uh oh.

Drew Hayden Taylor’s biting comedy about communities in conflict in Ontario’s Cottage Country exploded onto the theatre scene in 2019, garnering rave reviews before COVID-19 shut down our theatres. This powerful (and hilarious!) play opens a much-needed dialogue about Indigenous rights, and what happens at the grass roots when consumerism comes into conflict with environmentalism.

Reconciliation may mean one thing on Parliament Hill, but what does it mean on the back porch in the Kawarthas in July?
