Women of the Fur Trade

Written by Frances Koncan

Directed by Yvette Nolan

“It’s a total blast! Frances Koncan’s crackling dialogue and director Yvette Nolan’s sparkling staging turns this chapter of our history into an unforgettable theatrical event.”

Set during the height of the Fur Trade on the “reddish river” and using modern language, Women of the Fur Trade shares the story of the “hot nerd” Louis Riel and the women impacted by his cause. These three women are tired of being left out of history. This lively historical satire of survival and cultural inheritance reveals shared truths about love, life, and what separates us.

Recently a hit at the Stratford Festival, Director Yvette Nolan is reimagining this Treaty One story for the Globe Theatre. Join the Women of the Fur Trade as they spill the tea about the Red River Resistance.
