A NATIVE EARTH PRODUCTION
April 26-May 10, 2020
Bobby Rabbit has some unfinished business with Canada’s first prime minister. He convinces his friend Hugh to accompany him on a “sojourn of justice” to dig up the bones of Sir John A and hold them ransom. When Bobby learns that his grandfather’s medicine bundle lies moldering in a British museum, taken long ago from him at residential school, he enlists his friends to secure a bargaining chip and execute a heist so epic in scale none of them may ever see the light of day again.
Multi-award winning Ojibway playwright, Drew Hayden Taylor serves up an uproariously funny and sharply inquisitive new play exploring the possibility of reconciliation while urgently questioning past and contemporary forms of Canadian colonialism.
Written by Drew Hayden Taylor
Directed by Jim Millan
“A smart, punchy story that’s bolstered by sharp satire,
a quirky musical score…and a refreshing dose of humour.”
– Ottawa Citizen
“Drew bravely and masterfully touches up all of his stories
with humour where one usually would not find it.”
– Anishinabek News
