Synopsis: Rita Joe is a Native girl who leaves the reservation for the city, only to die on skid row as a victim of white men’s violence and paternalistic attitudes towards First Nations peoples. As perhaps the best-known contemporary Canadian play and a poetic drama of enormous theatrical power, The Ecstasy of Rita Joe had a major influence in awakening consciousness to the Indian problem” both in whites and Natives themselves.

Cast of five women and 15 men. With a preface by Chief Dan George.

The Ecstasy of Rita Joe premiered November 23, 1967 at the Vancouver Playhouse.

From the Back Cover: George Ryga's The Ecstasy of Rita Joe is perhaps the best known contemporary Canadian play - a lyric documentary about a young Indian girl who comes to the city only to die on Skid Row, a victim of white man's violence and his paternalistic attitude toward Native Peoples.
