Director: Natalie Robitaille

Synopsis: With her fair skin and curly hair, Salt Baby never quite fit in when she was growing up on the Six Nations Reserve.  As a young woman in the city, she is trying to find a way to fit in as she begins find her own identity.  What will it mean on the Rez? In the city? Will her Caucasian boyfriend ever understand? Will she? With affection and humour, Salt Baby tackles the question of First Nations identity in the 21st century.

Salt Baby is written for four actors playing multiple roles.  Please note that Salt Baby is rooted in Indigenous culture and written for artists who identify as Indigenous.

Magnus Theatre is situated on is the traditional territory of the Anishnaabek, the lands of Fort William First Nation, signatory to the Robinson Superior Treaty of 1850. We also recognize the contributions made to our community by the Métis people. We are grateful to exist, create and perform on this land, and we are committed to working alongside First Nations communities to ensure that we do not facilitate or unwittingly support the ongoing histories of colonization.

Magnus Theatre aims to be inclusive in all aspects of our work and programming. While we strive to make equity a priority in our organization, we recognize that the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and persons of colour in the arts sector have often been inequitable.  We understand the importance of our role as a cultural institution, and we work toward advancing equitable practices that support Black, Indigenous, and racialized populations.

Magnus Theatre encourages submissions from artists of all identities and ability.
