In the 1870's a girl is born under a tree -- her birth tree -- chosen to give her strength and wisdom. When the tree is cut down she follows it into the white man's world, working as a cook for the big house on the island. Her tree has become a kitchen table, one she will pass down through successive generations as a legacy -- a way of carving out her family stories. Now, generations later, a young man and his mother fight for ownership of the table. Directed by Marion Potts, the play is full of humour and is deeply affecting. Gently peeling away the layers of storytelling, it reveals the communal binds that lie beneath them. A moving testament to culture lived, lost and found, the strength of family, adapting and gathering together. 2 acts, 2 male, 2 female.
