‘Rita Joe’

Rita Joe

Peggy Revell

“Magistrates” (Mallory Duffy and Katja Sutherland) and policeman (Calvin Allan) presided over the trials of “Rita Joe” (Sophie Potvin-Begin) during Muskie Theatre’s performance of “The Ecstasy of Rita Joe” on Friday and Saturday nights at the Townshend Theatre. Fort High students and community members joined together to put on the play, written by George Ryga, which was one of the first to tackle the effects of Canadian and colonial history on First Nations.
