Café Daughter


Written by Kenneth T. Williams • Directed by Lisa C. Ravensbergen

Presented by Workshop West Playwright’s Theatre

Nine-year-old Yvette Wong helps out in her parents’ café. She’s incredibly smart but is put in the slow learners’ class because of her skin colour. Her mother has charged her with a secret – to never tell anyone she’s part Cree. Based on the true story of Senator Lillian Eva Quan Dyck, Café Daughter is the powerful, funny and touching tale of one woman’s journey to reclaim her heritage.

ShowStages designer T. Erin Gruber provided complete design services for Café Daughter, including set, lighting, costume, and projection design. Collaborator Joel Adria contributed technical setup and equipment rental for the two-projector system.
