Children of God, Called ‘Must-See Theatre’, Returns to Vancouver’s The Cultch

Submitted by Tyee Staff, 11 Feb 2019

In this powerful musical, the children of an Oji-Cree family are sent to a residential school in Northern Ontario. Children of God is a story of redemption: for a mother who was never let past the school’s gate, and her kids, who never knew she came. The performance offers a thrilling blend of ancient traditions and contemporary realities, celebrating resilience and the power of the Indigenous cultural spirit.

Children of God will return to Vancouver later this February after a national tour and its highly successful 2017 world premiere at The Cultch. Tickets are on sale now.

“Children of God is must-see theatre for Canadians” The Globe and Mail

“This is a brave work, and a starting point for important conversations… See it.” Kathleen Oliver, The Georgia Straight
