The Deer and the Antelope Play
“We gotta hang on to this land. To this life. We want others who come around here, sniffin’ around here after us to know about it. To know what the rules of the place are. Like how it breathes and when it sleeps.”
The Alberta Badlands – wide, expansive, weathered; man, a tiny aberration on this landscape. A place where myths are made. A coming of age tale, and winner of the Clifford E. Lee Playwriting Award and the Alberta Culture Playwriting Award. A co-production with the University of Alberta Drama Department.
