Sisters : a play by Wendy Lill( )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sisters is a tough, uncompromising look at a convent-run Native residential school. While the play chronicles in graphic detail the by now well documented agenda of cultural genocide which motivated the establishment of Native 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

Almighty Voice and his wife by Daniel David Moses( )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Almighty Voice and His Wife' shakes up a familiar story from the Saskatchewan frontier, reimagining it from the postmodern late twentieth century. The 'renegade Indian story' transforms into both an eloquent tale of tragic love and an often hilarious, fully theatrical exorcism of the hurts of history

Seventeen years ago, Isobel was murdered at the tender age of nine. Now she finds herself back in her previous life as a ghost, searching for the person responsible for her untimely death. But this time she's powerful, having the ability ot watch over the living, observe them, and sometimes interact with them. Of special interest are Isobel's former neighbours, whom she begins to suffer along with during their dark private experiences. Will she finally get the peace she's been yearning for? One of Judith Thompson's most enduring plays, Lion in the Streets looks at the inner turmoil of ordinary people and the ways in which they cope

La Sagouine : pièce pour une femme seule by Antonine Maillet( )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In La Sagouine, Maillet first gave written form to the language of Acadie, a language which, she says, has been "distorted by the climate and sharpened by the sea; by the salty air in the larynx and the obsessive beating of the waves in the cars." Her scrubwoman gave disenfranchised Acadians an authentic voice and established Maillet as a writer of international stature." "In this new translation, Wayne Grady brings out the cultural richness of La Sagouine's speech as well as the old scrubwoman's strength of character and irrepressible humour."--Jacket

Cast of five women and 15 men. With a preface by Chief Dan George. The Ecstasy of Rita Joe premiered November 23, 1967 at the Vancouver Playhouse
