Lying with Badgers: New Play by Native Voices at the Autry
Friday, February 28th @ 8:00 pm - Sunday, March 15th @ 11:00 pm
LYING WITH BADGERS WORLD PREMIERE
Written by Jason Grasl (Blackfeet)
Directed by Randy Reinholz (Choctaw)
February 28–March 15
Thursdays and Fridays: 8:00 p.m.
Saturdays and Sundays: 2:00 p.m.
In this wickedly funny new play, a magically charged world is ignited by wise-cracking spirit animals brought to life by puppets as estranged brothers of the Blackfeet Nation are pitted against one another in a fierce debate over the personal and economic issues Native people face today on their sovereign land. While exploiting mineral rights could provide economic relief for the tribe, it could also destroy sacred land. Traditions are challenged, allegiances are tested, and long-buried secrets are forced into light in this dark comedy.
Suggested for ages 14 and up due to strong language and complicated subject matter.
Native Voices at the Autry is devoted to developing and producing new works for the stage by Native American, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, and First Nations playwrights.
LIMITED ENGAGEMENT: February 28–March 15
$10 for Autry members | $25 for nonmembers | and $15 for students, seniors (60+), and military.
LYING WITH BADGERS tickets include museum admission to the Autry during the month of March.
