“One of the most touching, exuberant, cleverly crafted and utterly entrancing plays” – Toronto Star

Life is in a holding pattern on the Wasaychigan Hill Indian Reserve. The roads still aren’t paved, work is scarce and the only real action is at Big Joey’s house. Pelajia isn’t one of his conquests; she’s dreaming of a life beyond the reserve. But that seems out of reach until – can it be true? – The Biggest Bingo in the World is coming to Toronto! Which means one thing; the mother of all road trips. So Pelajia and her high-spirited rez sisters pile into a borrowed van in search of a big payout. Even the mysterious Nanabush hitches a ride. Buckle up for this funny, sassy and life-affirming play by Canadian favourite Tomson Highway.
