Children of God
Urban Ink (Vancouver); Co-produced with the Segal Centre (Montreal) and Presented with the Talking Stick Festival
Feb 20 – Mar 10, 2019 | York Theatre [map]
A musical by Corey Payette.
In this powerful musical, the children of an Oji-Cree family are sent to a residential school in Northern Ontario. This is a story of redemption: for a mother who was never let past the school’s gate, and her kids, who never knew she came. Children of God offers a thrilling blend of ancient traditions and contemporary realities, celebrating resilience and the power of the Indigenous cultural spirit.
Children of God returns after a national tour and its highly successful 2017 world premiere at The Cultch.
