by Daniel David Moses

One of the great plays of Canadian theatre, Almighty Voice and His Wife tells the story of a Cree man arrested for killing a cow without a license. In his escape, Almighty Voice becomes a martyr and a legend. Penned by Daniel David Moses, one of Canada’s premiere playwrights, this uncompromising work challenges with both story and form. Native Earth Performing Arts’ revival of this 1991 work has been touring since 2009, and has garnered rave reviews nationally and internationally. Part of the 2012 PuSh Festival, which will have a focus on First Nations work.

“Moses is a coroner of the theatre who slices open the human heart”
The Globe and Mail
