The Unatural and accidental Women

Presented by:

National Arts Centre

An NAC English Theatre, NAC Indigenous Theatre Co-production

Award-winning Métis-Dene playwright Marie Clements' tender and provocative The Unnatural and Accidental Women courageously demands that we never forget the continuing crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls across Canada. In this remarkable play, the spirits of ten women bear witness to each other's lives and deaths as they convene to support Rebecca's search for answers about her own mother, who went for a walk and never returned.

Using humour and deeply rooted ancestral knowledge to tell their stories, The Unnatural and Accidental Women fearlessly walks Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, pushing us ever closer to truth and remembering.
