Only Drunks and Children Tell the Truth

Written by celebrated Indigenous playwright Drew Hayden Taylor, Only Drunks and Children Tell The Truth is the gripping account of the “60’s scoop-up” phenomenon, in which Native children were taken from their families, their communities, and their culture to be adopted into white households. Dealing with themes of abandonment, reconciliation, identity, and cultural dissonance, this comically rich and devastatingly truthful production, first produced by the Firehall in the 90’s, is an unforgettable piece of Canadian theatre.
