A historical documentary of Sitting Bull’s exile in Canada after the Montana massacre at Little Big Horn. The play examines Sitting Bull’s relationship with superintendent Walsh of the North West Mounted Police and is the study of the disillusionment of a man who believes in his government’s integrity but who is betrayed by that government.“This is the law,” Walsh declares, “but where is the justice?” Premiered at Theatre Calgary. Subsequently performed at Stratford’s Third Stage.
