Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre: THE REZ SISTERS, May 5 - 28

The Royal MTC 2021/22 season closes with this sassy and life-affirming play by Canadian favourite Tomson Highway.

Life is in a holding pattern on the Wasaychigan Hill Indian Reserve. The roads still aren't paved, work is scarce and the only real action is at Big Joey's house. Pelajia isn't one of his conquests though; she's dreaming of a life beyond the reserve. But that seems out of reach until word spreads that the Biggest Bingo in the World is coming to Toronto! Which means one thing; the mother of all road trips. So Pelajia and her high-spirited rez sisters pile into a borrowed van in search of a big payout. Even the mysterious Nanabush hitches a ride.
