Urban Ink is very excited to get underway with development workshops (3-8 November) for Children of God as part of the Arts Club Theatre’s ReACT Festival.

Children of God is a musical about an Oji-cree family whose children were sent to residential school. It takes place in two time periods twenty years apart, and examines how the effects of our past are directly related to our future. This play was written as a celebration of Indigenous peoples’ never-ending cultural spirit that blends the traditional and the contemporary, providing a new perspective to this story. It shares in what was lost, and the pain and anger that still exists in many families from wounds that will not heal. Hopefully, by acknowledging these stories we can move toward accepting the past.

We have assembled an amazing cast and team for the project, which includes:

Cast: Margo Kane, Kevin Loring, Josue Laboucane, Arlie Worthing, Quelemia Sparrow, Kim Harvey, Aaron Wells, Jennifer Lines, and Micheal Querin.
Director: Allison Grant
Dramaturg: Sybille Pearson
Musical Director: Steven Greenfield
Stage Manager: Jan Hodgson
