Show description:A world premiere!
Playwright Colin Wolf has transformed stories and historical events from his Métis family, combined with his own personal experience, to create a world of Coyotes, Wolves and Coywolves. This story follows Isidor, a Coywolf, as he finds his place and his people in the world as a half breed. Moving through this cyber-folk world, Isidor discovers his love for storytelling and traveling across prairies, forests, and mountains. As change threatens his communities from the inside and out, he is pressured to join the resistance against human expansion. Isidor moves through death, loss, change and love as he searches for greener pastures - if there are any left. This is a story about governance, doing your best, and calling your mom before it's too late.
