Tales of an Urban Indian is exactly that. The stories of a child and young man struggling to find a place on and off the reserve. Along the way he inevitably encounters racism, poverty, violence, teenage pregnancy, addiction and death. Although it may provide a few giggles I feel the performance is much too real to be considered a comedy even if labelled a dark one.
Go see this for an entertaining insight into the current challenges faced by our First Nations people rather than an inconsequential ride on a bus or a laugh.
This performance takes place on a moving vehicle. Coarse Language, Adult Content, 16+
Tales of an Urban Indian presented by Talk is Free Theatre is playing at Presentation House Theatre 19 - 30 September 2018. TICKET INFO HERE
