by Drew Hayden Taylor | A Tarragon Theatre production
When Indigenous farmer Arthur Copper begins planting wild rice to reclaim lakeshores, the seeds bloom into a funny-yet-fiery exchange between the farmer and a white cottager, Maureen Poole. A microcosm of reconciliation, the confrontation traces issues of ownership and community.
