      A co-production with National Arts Centre Indigenous Theatre.
      By Rosanna Deerchild
      Directed by Renae Morriseau

      Gwynn is a local radio host. Her mother, Maggie, has a story.

      Maggie has spent a lifetime building a wall between herself and her memories—as well as between herself and her inquisitive, journalist daughter.

      Now, with a pot of steaming hot tea as the only thing between them, Maggie and Gwynn work to dismantle that wall, uncovering Maggie’s story in a journey of laughter, revelation, understanding, and the bond of a mother and daughter.

      The Secret to Good Tea is a vibrant, intimate, and cheeky family portrait based on playwright Rosanna Deerchild (CBC Unreserved) and her own mother. Fresh from a world premiere in its home province of Manitoba, Deerchild’s powerful first play is set to make its Ontario debut at the Grand Theatre, in partnership with National Arts Centre Indigenous Theatre. Renae Morriseau, who directed the play’s world premiere, returns to Deerchild’s work once again and will direct The Secret to Good Tea on the Grand Theatre’s Spriet Stage.
