Description

Fight On! - Development Performances of Part 1

April 10th - 22nd

Tues-Sat 8pm/Sun Matinees 2pm

Playwright & Director: Guy Sprung

An epic historical recounting of the settlement of the Canadian West!
In mentorship with 4D Art (Cité Memoire in Old Montréal) and with additional sardonic, ironic and iconic commentary by Drew Hayden Taylor (Ojibway, Curve Lake) to be added during the performance!


Francis Jeffery Dickens arrives in Canada in 1874 with all the prejudices and presumptions of a white colonist/settler. After serving 11 years as a member of the North West Mounted Police, horrified by the mendacity and theft that robbed the Indigenous Peoples of their lands, Frank learns to respect the traditions and wisdom of First Nations culture and begins to understand the urgent need to Live in harmony with Mother Nature.

Francis Jeffrey Dickens arrive au Canada en 1874 avec tous les préjugés et présomptions d’un colonisateur-colon de race blanche. Après 11 ans de loyaux services dans la Police à cheval du Nord-Ouest et horrifié par les mensonges et les pillages auxquelles les peuples des Premières Nations furent confrontés Frank apprend à respecter les traditions et la sagesse de la culture des Premières Nations et il commence donc à se rendre compte de l’urgence de vivre en harmonie avec Mère Nature.
