An important work of Indigenous Art.” - The Globe and Mail

By their mother’s bed in a hospital’s palliative care ward, two sisters keep vigil. As the pair reckon with their mother’s inevitable fate, they share memories of her younger years. In a spiritual journey that sees them confront the love and tragedy of their family’s past, these sisters discover a new home: in one another. Both funny and honest, Beagan’s play speaks to the strength of family bonds.

"The first time I read this play, I was immediately taken by the enormous honesty at the heart of the story. A family comes together and, as families always do, truths are revealed. It had me laughing out loud until the climactic ending, which had me in full tears. A beautiful new play you won’t soon forget." – Dennis Garnhum, Artistic Director

Grade Recommendation: 9+ (some strong language)
