My overall impression

‘Stories From the Indian Boarding School’ is a powerful and multifaceted performance piece that never lags and frequently dazzles.

Remarkable contribution by Tom Allard, deftly weaving diverse sensibilities into this complex, frequently unknown, and ultimately tragic chapter of our history.

Plus there is authentic music, cross over dancing, exquisite poetry, and plenty of humorous quick witted banter along with ‘gottcha in the gut’ zingers.

I would recommend it to anyone interested in a more accurate and honest view of American history or who simply appreciates good theatre with a sparkling ensemble.
