Blue Beads and Blue Berries

What do Cinderella and King Lear have in common? They were both inspired by the folktale CAP O’ RUSHES. French-Irish-Métis playwright Erin Macklem infuses this new adaptation with music and mischief, disguises and dancing. When the king asks his daughters how much they love him, his youngest answers “Like pemmican loves blueberries.” Outraged, he banishes her from his kingdom and she must use her wits and her creative gifts to find her way back to his heart. Filled with music and mischief, disguises and dancing – this Métis retelling of the classic story will delight audiences of all ages. Language, relationships, and problem solving all help the characters find a way to overcome challenges and become a family and community again.

“The truth about stories is, that's all we are.” ― Thomas King
