Meet Nakota, an isolated indigenous 11-year-old boy trying to write his own stories and find his way forward. One day, his 103-year-old grandfather Rocko visits him while he is in the hospital and together we explore many stories of the present along with the long-forgotten stories of the past.
Theatre Prospero and Thousand Faces Festival are happy to produce this show with support from EPCOR’s Heart+Soul Fund.
