Fireside Stories

Back to lineup


Throughout human history, we’ve always told each other stories. It’s where theatre came from. The tales are being created collectively by the artists who will tell them. There is a tale of Ukrainian immigrants who homesteaded here, and stories about Indigenous people and recent newcomers to Canada that tell about the challenges and bounty that this prairie landscape has to offer. Musician Lancelot Knight will add to the magic with original music created the evening.
