COTTAGERS AND INDIANS by Drew Hayden Taylor

Award-winning playwright Drew Hayden Taylor’s most recent play, a sold-out hit at Toronto’s Tarragon Theatre last season, is coming to Peterborough. Cottagers and Indians tells the story of an unraveling neighborly feud with a significant twist, epitomizing the differences between cultures, economic status, and people. Taylor uses humour to expose the absurdity that comes from these kinds of arguments, and touches on the severity of its historical implications. The play gives audiences a sincere and pragmatic look at the current conflicts between First Nation’ traditional water usage and property owners in cottage country who are looking to enjoy their summer homes.
