A compelling story of how a young Indigenous girl befriends an unsuspecting teenage Prairie boy, and together they explore how and why their paths are crossing even if it’s only for 48 hours. This untold tale of identity and hope only skims the surface surrounding the hidden and Complicit Residential School era, circa 1960. For a brief two weeks this production will be performed at the Jericho Arts Centre.

Lee Jay’s indigenous heritage is from his Grandmother, Sarah Bernard, being a full blood Mi’Kmaq from Burnt Church, New Brunswick, where he spent many of his childhood summers growing up.
