World Premiere

“There’s a flood of human warmth and compassion in anything Tara Beagan creates.” —NOW MAGAZINE

A grand, sweeping story of friendship and redemption.

It’s 1950 in the deserts of Southern California. Evangelist Brother Cain has a booming trade; his tent revival show moves from town to town, fleecing crowds desperate for something to believe in. When he discovers Mary, a Ntlaka’pamux woman from the Nicola Valley, reading the bible, he puts her onstage, renames her Grace, and displays her as a miracle: an Indian who can read.

It’s like a sprawling Steinbeck novel – a real saga – of encountering hypocrisy and evil, while clinging to the beliefs that guide you. Produced by the Belfry and created by an all-Indigenous team, including designer Andy Moro and writer/director Tara Beagan, one of our leading playwrights.

Yes, you can see a show at the Belfry and we’ll take care of your kids!

To help young parents experience the Belfry, we offer inexpensive tickets and free childcare (for children aged 3 – 10) for young families on select weekend afternoons.

Your children will be looked after by a trained, professional ECE, only a short stroll away from the theatre.

You can sign your children up when you buy individual tickets for any of these shows, or as part of a season ticket package. Childcare space must be reserved in advance, at least 1 week prior to your chosen performance.

Plans change? You can swap between matinees within the same show, or give your ticket and childcare spot to another parent friend – simply let us know by the Friday before your performance.

To learn more, please email us at hello@belfry.bc.ca, or call the box office at 250-385-6815 to reserve your tickets and free childcare.
