Métis Mutt recounts the story of Sheldon’s coming of age under extremely difficult family and cultural circumstances. The child of a violently alcoholic father, Sheldon struggles to come to grips with his feelings about being the eldest child in an abusive household. Experiencing bigotry from both sides of the racial fence, he attempts to understand both what drives him psychologically and what is important to him culturally.
Nominated for a Dora Mavor Moore Award (2016-2017), Métis Mutt is a heartbreaking and unpredictable performance piece. Through stand-up comedy, original songs, storytelling and brilliant multi-character vignettes, audiences are invited to share the journey of this young Métis man and watch him pull himself out of a destructive cycle and carve out a creative life for himself.
