Opening on the 100-year anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, this moving production follows the story of a young Métis volunteer soldier from the Nuu-chah-nulth nation of Vancouver Island deployed to fight in the First World War.

Set in Canada and the battlefields of France, Redpatch traces the journey of this young soldier as he endures trench warfare and discrimination as a result of his Indigenous heritage.

The performance promises to instil deeper understanding of the contributions First Nations soldiers and communities made in World War I.

To ensure the story was faithfully told, Raes Calvert and Sean Harris Oliver spent as many hours in libraries as they did travelling out to remote First Nations communities, including Nootka Island, which their fictional protagonist calls home.
