“I hope I never forget this place. Even more, I hope that it never forgets me.”
Niizh, written by Joelle Peters, is a coming-of-age comedy. Set on a reserve in Southwestern Ontario, the play follows the youngest of the ‘Little’ family, Lenna Little, who prepares to leave home for the first time. In the midst of this she meets Sam Thomas, who has returned to the reserve after many years away. Is there a meet-cute? Is there a fish fry? Is there a sax solo? You’ll have to wait and see!
Running Time: Approximately 100 minutes
