The Frybread Queen makes her appearance in Montana
Rehearsals began this week for my play The Frybread Queen which will be presented by Montana Repetory Theater, in production with the University of Montana and Native Voices at the Autry in Missoula, Montana, running two weekends, September 16th-19 and the 23rd-26th at the Masquer Theater at UM. I am thrilled to be part of the first weeks of rehearsal and it has been an amazing journey. Directed by UM's Jere Hodgin and dramaturged by Robert Caisley, the play tells the story of three generations of Indian women who come to terms with the death of a family member. Over the course of two days, secrets are revealed and tragic consequences occur. Starring Jane Lind as Jessie, Arigon Starr as Annalee, Lillie Gladstone as Carlisle and Tiffany Wild as Lily, this play will also be part of Native Voices at the Autry's season in Los Angeles as a staged reading in November and a full production in March. More later!
