We’re told to forgive, no matter what is done to you.
A Castlereigh Theatre Project
God’s Lake chronicles the strength and resilience of the people in the remote fly-in reserve of God’s Lake Narrows, Manitoba following traumatic events of unresolved justice and a complex and challenging past. This glimpse into the lived reality of the community is told using verbatim text from interviews, heightened physicality, bold northern imagery, and an original live score. God’s Lake offers a rare chance to witness the difficult issues facing people living in a remote community within the reserve system.
A vivid, original work of verbatim, documentary theatre.
