Description

Someday is the second edition of Drew Hayden Taylor's outstanding play about a fictional Ojibway First Nation somewhere in Ontario. It could be set in any First Nation community in Canada because it deals with a painful time when thousands of Indigenous children were removed from their families during the notorious "scoop-up" of the 1950s and 1960s. Anne Wabung's daughter was taken from her by children's aid workers when the girl was a toddler. Now, 35 years later at Christmastime, Anne's hope to be reunited with her daughter is realized. However, the dreams of mother and daughter are not fulfilled. Taylor's distinctive humour and style entertain and inform about this real-life tragedy suffered by countless Indigenous families in Canada. Someday was first produced in 1991 by De-ba-jeh-mu-jig Theatre of Manitoulin, Ontario. Recommended for First Nation Literature courses at the senior high school and university levels.
