CAFÉ DAUGHTER at The National Arts Centre in Ottawa for Canada Scene!
It's true! The profound and touching production of Kenneth T. Williams' play CAFÉ DAUGHTER will be a part of Canada's 150th birthday celebrations, as part of the National Arts Centre's Canada Scene.
Canada Scene features over 1000 artists from across Canada, and more than 100 events, including CAFÉ DAUGHTER, June 16-18 in the NAC Studio! If you're planning a trip to our Nation's capital this summer to be a part of the on-going celebrations, we hope you'll take in a performance by Tiffany Ayalik, as the CAFÉ DAUGHTER! Directed by Lisa C. Ravensbergen, designed by T. Erin Gruber, and stage managed by Betty Hushlak.
About the play: Nine-year-old Yvette Wong helps out in her parents’ café. She’s incredibly smart but is put in the slow learners’ class because of her skin colour. Her mother has charged her with a secret – to never tell anyone she’s part Cree. Based on the true story of Senator Lillian Eva Quan Dyck, Café Daughter is the powerful, funny and touching tale of one woman’s journey to reclaim her heritage.
Workshop West Playwrights' Theatre is proud to be beginning the touring show of CAFÉ DAUGHTER at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa! Stay tuned for more tour dates, including a tour to Yellowknife, NWT in September!
