Between 1914 and 1918, over four thousand First Nations soldiers volunteered to fight and die for Canada in the First World War. Redpatch is a new Canadian play about a young Métis solider from the Nuu-chah-nulth nation of Vancouver Island, who volunteers to fight for Canada in the First World War. Set in both Canada and the battlefields of France, Redpatch follows the experiences of this young solider as he endures the horrors of war. Follow our hero as he travels from his home on Vancouver Island all the way to the battlefields of France, and retrace our steps as we created this play. Featuring a cast of Indigenous performers.
