Description

Almighty Voice and His Wife shakes up a familiar story from the Saskatchewan frontier, reimagining it from the postmodern late twentieth century. The “renegade Indian story” transforms into both an eloquent tale of tragic love and an often hilarious, fully theatrical exorcism of the hurts of history. A modern classic about the place of First Nations people in Canada.

"By its end, the poetic, imaginative Almighty Voice and His Wife has turned into a one-ring circus. And that's a good thing." —Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine


"…one of the few plays firmly considered as part of the canon of great Canadian drama…" —Christopher Hoile, EYE Weekly
