The journey is the destination: Sir John A: Acts of a Gentrified Ojibway Rebellion

Over the past couple of months, the name Sir John A Macdonald and the question of whether he should be revered or vilified have been widely discussed in the media, sparking numerous debates across the country in regards to one of Canada’s most important historical figures.

Commissioned by the NAC English Theatre for Canada’s 150th, award-winning playwright and humorist Drew Hayden Taylor has created a timely new comedy centred on a daring heist that speaks to the question “Is my culture more important than yours?”.

Filled with humour and sorrow, this bittersweet sesquicentennial story is about finding life’s purpose, knowing when to hang on, and when to let go.

Actors Darrell Dennis, Katie Ryerson, Herbie Barnes discuss character development in the play Sir John A: Acts of a Gentrified Ojibway Rebellion.
