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.

THE DRAW: Inspired by First Nations music, Payette’s moving score also includes echoes of Broadway masterpieces such as Fun Home and Next to Normal.

Children of God is a generous gift that helped me understand my role in the process of reconciliation as a non-Indigenous Canadian. It’s an inspiring and immediate call to action, and essential viewing for anyone who lives on this land”
