LES FILLES DU ROI is “a triumph”!

LES FILLES DU ROI is “a triumph”!

We are so proud to have partnered up with Urban Ink, Fugue Theatre and Raven Theatre to present Les Fille du Roi. Les Filles du Roi runs until May 27 at the York Theatre. The amazing creators of Children of God (which is coming back to The Cultch due to popular demand, Feb 20 – Mar 10, 2019) have done it again!

Les Filles du Roi is the powerful story of Kateri, a young Mohawk girl, and her brother Jean-Baptiste whose lives are disrupted upon the arrival of les filles du roi in 1665. They forge an unlikely relationship with young fille Marie-Jeanne Lespérance – whose dreams of a new life are more complicated than she could have imagined. Over the course of a year, Mohawk, French and English journeys collide, setting the stage for the Canada we know today.
