Of Cultural Interest, perhaps for a day out in Boston.
Or to inspire a Middletown Playwright.
The Wampanoag people have been stewarding their land for over 10,000 years across several eastern states, including Massachusetts. After colonization, their voice was silenced. We Are The Land is part pageant, part play, where audiences will hear directly from Wampanoag people telling their story of their relationship to the soil, how it was taken away, and how the nation has re-established themselves in a way that both honors their ancestors and looks toward the future.
Working with a group of Wampanoag artists, actors, and storytellers, Mashpee resident and member of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe, Siobhan Brown, alongside Hartman Deetz, have brought this incredible event to fruition. After its World Premiere in Plymouth, UK, We Are the Land comes to Boston for a very special two performance engagement.

Performances at the Emerson Theatre, Boston (see below), likely to be sold out. It is hoped that the play may be presented again and at other venues in other states. Maybe in Connecticut. Maybe in Middletown. Just think: We Are the Land, at the Oddfellows Playhouse, or as an Art Farm production or a youth theater performance.
