This brand new play written and performed by Quelemia Sparrow tells the story of a mixed-race aboriginal woman in a present-day, colonized world. With humour and truth, the story snapshots us through Quelemia’s life from her international modeling career– partying with the rich and famous, to fishing trips with her dad, her connection/disconnection to home; and her journey of healing through intergenerational trauma.
O’wet/Lost Lagoon is produced by Alley Theatre in association with Full Circle: First Nations Performance. It has been developed in partnership with Playwrights Theatre Centre and in community partnership with Vancouver Aboriginal Frienship Centre Society.
