Description

alterNatives: A Play by Ojibwe playwright sets the stage with a very liberal contemporary couple, Angel, an urban Native science fiction writer, and Colleen, a non-practising Jewish intellectual who teaches Native literature as the pair hosts a dinner party. The guests at this little sitcom soiree are couples that represent what by now have become the cliched extremes of both societies: Angel's former radical Native activist buddies and Colleen's environmentally concerned vegetarian / veterinarian friends. The menu is, of course, the hosts' respectful attempt at shorthand for the irreconcilable cultural differences about to come to a head during the evening: moose roast and vegetarian lasagna.
