True tales of the Beothuk are lost forever to time, but a new play from PerSIStence Theatre explores the lives and legacy of a people now culturally extinct due to colonial violence.

Written by L’nu playwright Leahdawn Helena, STOLEN SISTERS stars renowned Inuk performer Deantha Edmunds.

Historical record tells us a little of child Oubee, woman Shanawdithit, and elder Santu Toney. While exact details may be forever lost, there is still much Truth to be shared from their narratives – Truth that has been obscured or ignored by colonial storytellers.

​Drawing from her own journey of Reconciliation as a member of the Qalipu Nation, Leahdawn Helena crafts a play that attempts to honour their Truth.

Playing: July 11 & 12, 2023 

Anyone identifying as Indigenous is invited to attend at no cost. Please call the Box Office at 1-877-243-2899 to book your complimentary seats.
