WITH Lily Gladstone, Shaun Taylor-Corbett, Shane Regan, Adria LaMorticella, Sarah Winsor, Mark Fullerton, Meaghan Mary Halverson. DIRECTED BY Desiree Prewitt, assisted by Melissa Woodrow and Juliet Waller-Pruzan.
So Damn Proud speaks to a desire to create work that honors the inherent beauty that is the fabric of our collective experience in North America.
Specifically, the profound experience of Native Americans living amongst a dominant culture that at times views this living, breathing people as a relic—one objectified as a mascot, a costume, and an entity of the past.
So Damn Proud is often hilarious. Yet, this highly-charged drama digs deep, taking a gritty and poignant look at family.
