Family of a different kind.

This play is a fast, easy read. It is an interesting tale of women of different ages and different life stories traveling to a bingo game: the biggest bingo game ever. Each woman is hoping to win the game for a different reason. The story of how they decide to go to the game, traveling to the game, and entering into the game is full of fighting, understanding, and camaraderie. Each woman is a special asset to the "journey," and the women truly become sisters. This is a wonderful play that depicts these women as `real' women, women you know, women you wish you didn't know, and women who are important in your life. It is humorous, interesting, complex, sad, and hopeful. This is a great read.

The Sisters from the Rez

This was a really dramatic play that expressed many issues that many people would never talk about in a book. It dealt with rape, death and solidarity among Native women. When it was assigned in my first year English class, I was not sure what to think before I read it. After I read it I found that it was one of the best plays that I have ever read and gives new insight into the Native culture in Canada.

A funny play with a taste of reality

I really enjoyed this play. It had very humourous parts, and also provided a unique insight into the Native-Canadian reserves lifestyle. The women are depicted in a very unique style, and are very funny, and life-like. While reading this play, I quite often felt as though I were playing one of the characters myself. I had to read this for school, and I am glad, because it was very touching, and also a good learning experience, learning about other cultures in Canada.
