About the Author
Tomson Highway is one of the most distinctive playwrights to come along in years. His plays explore the contemporary Indian in dominant white society, and the results are both exciting and challenging. Highway was born on his father's trap-line in northern Canada. His father was a trapper, fisherman, and legendary dogsled racer. Trained as a concert pianist, Tomson turned to playwriting as a way to portray the lives and times of Native people. His award-winning plays have been produced throughout the United States and Canada and around the world, and his works are studied extensively at universities everywhere.
