Deer Woman

Date: 8 Dec 2018

“My name is Lila and I am a proud Blackfoot woman. What I am doing is illegal.”

So begins Deer Woman, a solo warrior woman work of righteous vengeance, starring storyteller, activist and comedian Cherish Violet Blood.

Written by Canadian playwright Tara Beagan, Deer Woman tells of one young, missing and murdered girl in a country where 1,600 Indigenous women and girls are recognised as being missing and/or murdered.

But Lila, the missing girl’s big sister, refuses to stand idly by. She is the daughter of a hunter who taught her all he knew. She’s ex-army, too. When circumstances converge, Lila finds the perfect opportunity to avenge her baby sister’s murder while exercising the skills the Canadian government trained into her.

Please note: Deer Woman contains graphic historical and contemporary violence and is suitable only for ages 16+.
