Tarragon Chez Vous

My Sister’s Rage
In association with Studio 180 Theatre and TO Live
Written and Directed by Yolanda Bonnell

Available for viewing on demand anytime until May 31, 2023 @ 11:59pm. (EST/GMT-5)

When their Matriarch ends up in a coma, a ma’iingan-wolf clan family gathers together to work through their collective grief and begin to heal from an incident in the past. While the Aunties camp out in the hospital room, the younger cousins spend their time at the Grandmother’s house by the backyard firepit; all while being circled by a cackling crow jokester.

As the veil between the ancestral plane and the earthly realm gets thinner, tensions and emotions are high and vulnerabilities are exposed, revealing the true strength and resilience of the ma’iingan kwe.

Yolanda Bonnell’s My Sister’s Rage is a story about the nuances of holding trauma and joy at the same time and how laughter is medicine.

Audience Advisory: My Sister’s Rage contains deep grief, self-harm, substance use, illness/medical trauma and owl imagery.
