The Cultch presents Children of God

York Theatre20 Feb '19 to 10 Mar '19 @ 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM

    The Cultch is thrilled to bring Corey Payette’s award-winning musical Children of God back to the traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. After its momentous cross-country tour it returns to the York Theatre, February 20-March 10, 2019.

    In this powerful musical, the children of an Oji-Cree family are sent to a residential school in Northern Ontario. It is a story of redemption: for a mother who was never let past the school’s gate, and her kids, who never knew she came. Children of God offers a thrilling blend of ancient traditions and contemporary realities, celebrating resilience and the power of the Indigenous cultural spirit.

    In 2017, after its breakthrough premiere at The Cultch, Children of God won three Ovation Awards including Outstanding New Musical, Outstanding Direction, and Outstanding Set Design, and was nominated for a Jessie Richardson Award for Outstanding Contribution to a National Conversation. Since then it has had a run at the National Art Centre, and traveled the country, garnering rave reviews. It continues its Canadian tour in 2019, with stops throughout BC, as well as Montreal.
