"Where the Blood Mixes"


" 'This place is called Kumsheen in our language... The place inside the heart where the blood mixes.'
Bitingly funny and brutally honest, Where the Blood Mixes is a deeply personal story about loss and redemption, humanity and survival.

Floyd and Mooch, raised in residential schools, are confronted with their past when Floyd’s daughter Christine returns to Kumsheen after twenty years. Her arrival unleashes a flood of memories and secrets forcing each of them to face the truth underlying not only their own history, but the history of a Nation.

Set during the salmon run, this highly acclaimed play takes us to the bottom of the river, to the heart of a People."
(all of the above is taken from the Roxy website's description of the show)

The show starts at 8pm, so let's meet at 7:30 in the lobby of the Roxy. Pre-show dinner is an option for anyone interested. We can discuss that closer to the day of the show.

Hope you can join me! This sounds really interesting! :)

    I saw it too. It reenforces the meaning of the play. this play will stay with ( as in "haunt") me for a long time. How could this happen in Canada ?

      I agree. Such things have happened in Canada, and it's important for future generations to learn about this history.

    The news was also on today's Metro. Interestingly I am noticing this for the first time after the night's performance.

      It's amazing how much of an impact that play has had on us, right?

    I just saw this in the news today, and thought I'd share, given that it relates directly to the play. So sad. :(

    5+ Stars! The play was power and very emotional on many levels. All the performers were spot on. The show is touring Canada - if you get a chance to see it, I highly recommend the experience. Post show talk back with the playwright, director and actors was really a great opportunity to hear the stories behind the story.

    Amazing and powerful play about a theme that's very important in Canadian history and in current times.

    A touching story. I got misty, cried like a sisi. I was embarrassed by the fact that I was the only one who raised his hand to the post-show discussion question of who never heard of Residential Schools stories before. To my credit though, I was also probably the only non-native Canadian in that crowd.

    There is a post-show talkback after the play this evening. This session will feature the playwright, the cast, and filmmaker Georgina Lightning. Sounds fun! See you all tonight! I'm really looking forward to this show.
