The Burlington Performing Arts Centre will be presenting the Tarragon Theatre production of Cottagers and Indians by Drew Hayden Taylor November 3 & 4 in their Community Studio Theatre.

Wild rice sparks a battle royale between a native farmer and a white cottager, whose increasingly bitter dispute becomes a microcosm for reconciliation. Told with warmth and humour, and encompassing issues of community, respect and ownership, Cottagers & Indians is a tale for our times – and a food fight for the ages.

Scenes from the Tarragon Theatre production of Cottagers and Indians

Award-winning playwright Drew Hayden Taylor exposes the absurdity that comes from these kinds of arguments, and touches on the severity of its historical implications. Cottagers and Indians gives audiences a sincere and pragmatic look at the current conflicts between First Nations’ traditional water usage and property owners in cottage country who are looking to enjoy an undisturbed summer getaway. There will be a post-show chat with the cast of Cottagers and Indians.
