Coyote City / Big Buck City : Two Plays (Paperback) (Daniel David Moses)
about this item
A respected First Nations Canadian playwright and Governor General’s Award finalist, Daniel David Moses is known for using storytelling and theatrical conventions to explore the consequences of the collision between Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures. Coyote City and Big Buck City are the first two in his series of four City Plays that track the journey of one particular Native family between a world of Native spiritual traditions and the materialist urban landscape in which we all attempt to survive. Coyote City, a tragedy, begins with a phone call from a ghost that sends a young Native woman, Lena, her family in pursuit, on a search in the city for her missing lover Johnny. Big Buck City, a farce, tells the story of Lena’s subsequent Christmas reunion in that city with her family just in time for the birth of her own miraculous child.
