Darrell Dennis: Two Plays
Tales of An Urban Indian / The Trickster of Third Avenue East
Tales of an Urban Indian is a one-person play that follows the trials and tribulations of Simon Douglas, a young First Nations man who moves from his rural reservation to the big city of Vancouver. This dark comedy examines the issues of race, identity, and assimilation that drive young Indigenous men to self-destruction.
In The Trickster of Third Avenue East, Roger and Mary are spiralling out of control but are too scared to let each other go. Enter J. C., a mysterious visitor who turns their lives upside down and forces them to confront their darkest secrets. J. C. pushes Roger and Mary into the realm of the supernatural and past the brink of sanity.
