A new play by Megan Gail Coles
Annie is not your average teen. She’s feisty. She’s sharp. She’s aboriginal. And, she’s aging out of foster care on her birthday. Where she will go? Will she return to northern Canada and live off the land with her traditional grandmother? Or remain in a southern city where aboriginal girls like her go missing? Poof. Disappeared. Vanished. When the pressure seems too much, Annie uses the video game world to level up in the game and in her life. Lost somewhere between her real life and the video game world she clings to, Annie searches for a new place to be where her identity won’t be questioned and her safety won’t be at risk. Can Annie overcome the obstacles to “win” the day for herself, her mother, her grandmother, and the millions of women like them?
The performance will be followed by a brief talk back with the playwright, Megan Gail Coles.
