Dreary and Izzy, by Ntlaka’pamux playwright Tara Beagan, is the funny and poignant story of the Monoghan sisters, Deirdre and Isabelle, who are suddenly left to care for themselves.
Deirdre, the biological child of the Monoghans – a White Catholic family – takes on the responsibility as the sole caregiver to her older sister, Isabelle, an adopted young Blackfoot woman born with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). Deirdre is struggling in this new role when Freddie Seven Horses, a charming vacuum cleaner salesman, arrives at their door and sparks unexplored emotions in each sister.
All shows are at 8:00 p.m. sharp. Doors open 7:30 p.m.
