by Frances Koncan
A decolonial comedy about truth, reconciliation, and love against the backdrop of the past, present, and retrofuture.
Using the collective culture of contemporary colonial Canada, the play is set across three time periods of Canadian history: a residential school in the ‘60’s, a murderer’s basement in the ‘90’s, and a castle in the postapocalyptic future. Through a kaleidoscope of theatrical styles, the play explores the ramifications of trauma across generations, and searches for what a decolonized nation and decolonized theatre might look like.
★★★★ “This show is like a really good acid trip that suggests post-apocalyptic hope is possible.” – CBC News
