A stage adaptation based on the acclaimed graphic novel.

This gripping historical drama follows Riel known as "The Father of Manitoba" right through the famous Red River Rebellion and his subsequent trial. Mad man or visionary? Traitor or patriot? Louis Riel - a comic-strip stage play that at times is charged with controversy, unflinching in it's depiction of our historical forefathers. None are left untouched and we are all left to marvel.
