One day I was thinking about the unemployment lines, food lines, people dying. Then I was thinking, where do we go from here? Then I was thinking,
would it not be fantastic to have a town to go to? A pretty Native town. Owned by Natives, run by Natives, with a café, a Community Hall and a place to have a Pow wow. Where people listen to each other, work out problems and like each other, or maybe not, it’s up to them. That is Town of
Little Sagas. Enjoy!
– Playwright & Director Muriel Miguel
Town of Little Sagas
Developed at the Stratford Festival and American Indian Artists, inspired by A Midsummer Night's Dream, will feature a cast of 20 Indigenous performers from the US and Canada and will explore Native tricksters and spirits that exist in the stories and daily lives of Indigenous nations.
