Sainte-Marie among the Hurons

By James W. Nichol

Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons is James W. Nichol’s play concerning the disastrous mission that the Jesuits made to the Huron Indians in the 17th century. The play is about the conscience of a priest who refuses to accept salvation of his soul through the destruction of a proud people.

“The play has a burning sincerity … A fascinating glimpse of two totally different cultures.”
Ottawa Citizen
