Saturday, June 25 at 3pm, in the Healy Rehearsal Room

Around 1 hour and 20 minutes with no intermission

In 1680 Nuevo México, the Indigenous Pueblo population rebelled against the occupying Spanish colonial rule, remaining to this day the only successful Indigenous-led revolution in North America. In the weeks and months before, during, and after, two Indigenous brothers from Isleta Pueblo—one an inexperienced revolutionary, the other a gay idealist—discuss revolution, their own place within history, and what they’re willing to do to live freely in Dillon Chitto’s new comedy.

Land Acknowledgement

Goodman Theatre was built on the traditional homelands of the Anishinaabe, or the Council of the Three Fires: the Ojibwe, Odawa and Potawatomi Nations. We recognize that many other Nations consider the area we now call Chicago as their traditional homeland—including the Myaamia, Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Sac and Fox, Peoria, Kaskaskia, Wea, Kickapoo and Mascouten—and remains home to many Native peoples today.

While we believe that our City of Chicago, in its vast diversity, should be reflected in the plays on the stages of its largest theater, we acknowledge that the Goodman’s efforts towards inclusive programming have largely overlooked the voices of our Native peoples. This omission has added to the isolation, erasure and harm that Indigenous communities have faced for hundreds of years.

With the Chicago premiere of Mohegan theater-maker Madeline Sayet’s play Where We Belong—the story of an Indigenous artist who journeys across geographic borders, personal history and cultural legacies in search of a place to belong—we at the Goodman have begun a more deliberate journey towards celebrating Native American stories and welcoming Indigenous communities who may have never felt that the “American theater” is their place to belong.

As we welcome the Indigenous peoples of Chicagoland into the theater, meet with Native community leaders, and collaborate with and uplift the work of local Native-led organizations, we also make an ongoing commitment to our Native collaborators, audience and community members.
