Inciting intersectionality and intercultural theatre in Vancouver and beyond.

Only Drunks and Children Tell the Truth

Presented by Firehall Arts Centre

Written by Drew Hayden Taylor, directed by Columpa C. Bobb, starring Chris Cound, Braiden Houle, Chelsea Rose Tucker, & Ashley Chartrand, lighting design by Jonathan Kim

Written by celebrated Indigenous playwright Drew Hayden Taylor, Only Drunks and Children Tell The Truth is the gripping account of the “60’s scoop-up” phenomenon, in which Native children were taken from their families, their communities, and their culture to be adopted into white households. Dealing with themes of abandonment, reconciliation, identity, and cultural dissonance, this comically rich and devastatingly truthful production, first produced by the Firehall in the 90’s, Only Drunks is an unforgettable piece of Canadian theatre.
