Wild Wild West          Feb. 27 – Mar. 4

Persephone Theatre

Who should tell the story of Gabriel Dumont and his role in the North-West Resistance? If you ask folks at the National Arts Centre, they will tell you we all have a role in telling this story. Gabriel Dumont’s Wild West Show is a multilingual production that was created by 10 playwrights from right across Canada. The show is told through English, Michif and Cree, with translations and follows Dumont’s story after the hanging of Louis Riel. This is a show not without controversy as it’s brought up themes of cultural appropriation as it tells the story from many points of view. This is a co-production and a world premiere with Persephone Theatre, Gordon Tootoosis Nīkānīwin Theatre ad La Troupe du Jour all as presenting partners. Tickets are $45 – $48.
