Indigenous Summer Play Readings 2021

Indigenous Summer Play Readings 2021 presented by Gwaandak Theatre

This Is How We Got Here by Keith Barker and directed by Jeszika Mae

It’s been a year since Paul and Lucille’s son Craig committed suicide, and their once-solid family bonds are starting to break down. While the now-separated couple tries to honour their son, Lucille’s sister Liset and her husband Jim refuse to discuss their nephew. The ties that keep the four together as sisters, best friends, and spouses are strained by grief and guilt… until a visit from a fox changes everything.

Honour Beat by Tara Beagan and directed by Jordan Hope Kaltenbruner
Two grown sisters face off over their mother’s death-bed. Together they confront one another, their own identities, and what will remain when their mom leaves this world. A contemporary look at the significance of faith and family, Honour Beat explores the stories this Indigenous family has told itself through the years, as their mother’s youthful spirit leads them toward forgiveness.
