About the Book
The Willows, Saskatchewan: Frank, a young Métis lawyer, introduces his fiancé to the idyllic life of his community one July long weekend. That weekend his law practice and his personal life are threatened when the provincial game wardens accuse him of poaching a deer.
Stretching Hide heads to the country to present a portrait of a community not often seen on Canadian stages or written into the official histories of Canada—the Métis Nation.
Winner of the Canadian National Playwriting Competition.
“Stretching Hide presents a very serious story with compelling honesty and humour.”
“My people will sleep for one hundred years, but when they awake, it will be the artists who give them their spirit back.”
