Cafe Daughter

By Kenneth T. Williams

Inspired by the real-life childhood of Saskatchewan’s retired Senator and neuroscientist Dr. Lillian Dyck. Cafe Daughter is the story of a whip smart kid in 1957 Saskatchewan navigating three different cultures in pursuit of her dream to be a scientist. Her Chinese immigrant father has his own ideas of what a daughter should grow up to be and her Cree mother will do anything to protect her from pernicious racism that nullifies hope. The driving action in this astonishing play is Yvette’s determination to defy odds and fulfill her ambitions. Cafe Daughter has captivated audiences in Edmonton, Calgary, and most recently over a sold-out run in Blyth, Ontario.
