Two Indians shortlisted for Governor General’s Literary Awards
Congratulations to Falen Johnson for her play Two Indians being shortlisted for the 2021 Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama.
Win lives on the rez and Roe lives in the city, where she fled after a terrible family tragedy. After years apart, the two cousins reunite in a Toronto alley to recreate a ceremony from their childhood, but can they remember how? Has the world changed too much? Have they? When the words “missing and murdered,” “truth and reconciliation,” “occupation and resistance” are everywhere, how do two Mohawk women stand their ground? Falen Johnson’s powerful Two Indians is a darkly comedic look at the landscape of being Indigenous.
