Do sports mascots really matter? Please come and join us for a rousing evening of laughter, but with a serious punchline, on Thursday, October 22, as Roosevelt’s Hands for A Bridge presents “Sonny Sixkiller Buys the Washington Redskins”! This exciting live production by Native American playwright, Darrell Hillaire, was shown last year to an enthusiastic audience at the Moore Theatre and now comes again to Seattle onstage at Roosevelt High School! The large cast includes tribal youth from the Lummi Youth Academy, tribal elders and others from the Lummi Tribe. The play is appropriate for all ages and explores, through satire, the controversy surrounding the NFL’s Washington Redskins’ mascot and its impacts on Native Americans and all people. The cast and crew invite the audience to join them for a post-show discussion in the theatre.
