Event Notes

×

Sisters is a tough, uncompromising look at a convent-run Indian residential school. While the play chronicles in graphic detail the by now well documented agenda of cultural genocide which motivated the establishment of residential schools in Canada, the daring triumph of this play is that it reveals the far less well documented cultural infrastructure and values of the society which created those schools—the church and the state of white, colonial, paternalist Canada.

This play contains content that may be triggering for some audience members. The National Indian Residential School Crisis Line provides 24-hour crisis support to former Indian Residential School students and their families toll-free at 1-866-925-4419.
