In association with Gwaandak Theatre, The Guild presents Dreary and Izzy by Ntlaka’pamux playwright Tara Beagan. 1975, Lethbridge Alberta. The Monoghan sisters, Deirdre and Isabelle, are suddenly left to care for themselves. Deirdre, the biological child of the Monoghans – a White Catholic family – takes on the responsibility as the sole caregiver to her older sister, Isabelle, an adopted young Blackfoot woman born with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). Deirdre is struggling in this new role when Freddie Seven Horses, a charming vacuum cleaner salesman, arrives at their door and sparks unexplored emotions in each sister.
With Brenda Barnes, Katelyn Clark, Isabelle James-Walker and Colin Wolf.
"If you want to see how a gifted playwright stages strong emotions, you can find no better example than Dreary and Izzy, Tara Beagan's heartfelt look at a family affected by fetal alcohol damage." —Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine
