It’s a first for the St. Boniface theatre company, which will premiere the new play next April.
"That is my understanding, that they’ve never focused on this language the way this play does," said the La Salle-based playwright, Rhéal Cenerini.

The main character returns to his village after being exiled with a mission, Cenerini said.
