Heaven draws on the little-known true history of Black pioneers in the prairies. In 1927, Charlotte arrives in rural northern Alberta to work as a schoolteacher and find her own small piece of heaven. A prairie story of resilience, love and baseball.

CHARLOTTE WILLIAMS, 35 – a smart, Black woman who doesn’t know when to bite her tongue. Descendant of Ontario Underground Railroad

EZRA JONES, mid- 40s, a Black farmer and community leader.

Play takes place in February – July 1927

Location: Amber Valley Alberta was a real community of Black pioneers who fled brutal racism in their southern US home territories when those territories became the state of Oklahoma in 1907.
