NEECHIE-ITAS by Jo MacDonald (Anishinaabe)
Venue: LCF Online Events
Spencer, Linda, Maggie and Carm are life-time Neechies from a small Anishinaabe reserve in Canada and unite for a weekend of night clubbing and salsa dancing. Instead, chaos ensues when jilted-bride Spencer's ex, Lewis Longclaws shows up at the night club and an arrow is fired by a mysterious shooter. Probable cause lands the Neechies in jail. They bamboozle police weaving stories about Sabe (Bigfoot), aliens, UFO's, Spencer's Vera Wang wedding dress and insist they have credible intel on Lewis' criminal activity. This Indigenous comedy examines the enduring power of love and sisterhood.
