Story is the song line of a person’s life. We need to sing it and we need someone to hear the singing. Story told, story heard, story written, story read, create the web of life in words.

Double Life: The Story of E. Pauline Johnson

Double Life is a sixty-minute story/theatre celebration of the life and times of Canadian poet/performer E. Pauline Johnson

Pauline Johnson (1861-1913) was of dual heritage: Mohawk and English. From 1892-1909, Pauline performed her own stories, poems and plays across Canada, the United States and England. Defying all the social conventions of the day, this single, Native woman mesmerized audiences everywhere. Pauline’s own story shines as brightly as her work. Through stories and poetry, Margaret brings Pauline’s story to life. Double Life is a celebration of a Canadian heroine who paved the way for all of us.
