Children of God
A NEW MUSICAL BY COREY PAYETTE | WORLD PREMIERE | AN URBAN INK (VANCOUVER) PRODUCTION IN COLLABORATION WITH NATIONAL ARTS CENTRE ENGLISH THEATRE, IN ASSOCIATION WITH RAVEN THEATRE (VANCOUVER) / THE CULTCH (VANCOUVER)
MAY 17 - JUNE 3
In this powerful musical, the children of an Oji-Cree family are sent to a residential school in Northern Ontario. This is a story of redemption: for a mother who was never let past the school’s gate, and her kids, who never knew she came. Children of God offers a thrilling blend of ancient traditions and contemporary realities, celebrating resilience and the power of the Indigenous cultural spirit.
THE DRAW: Inspired by First Nations music, Payette’s moving score also includes echoes of Broadway masterpieces such as Fun Home and Next to Normal.
