Among the Cedars

Based on true life events, the play follows young Emily Carr as she flees home and ventures into the thick forests of British Columbia, landing amongst the Indigenous Kwakwaka'wakw Nation, in hopes of burying a traumatic family secret. It was in this home away from home that Carr developed as an artist.



Among The Cedars is a coming of-age story that explores themes of familial roots and self-discovery, and ultimately poses the question "What is the line between artistic and cultural inspiration and artistic cultural appropriation?"
