Someday is a powerful new play by award-winning playwright Drew Hayden Taylor.  The story in Someday, though told through fictional characters and full of Taylor''s distinctive wit and humour, is based on the real-life tragedies suffered by many Native Canadian families.

Anne Wabung''s daughter was taken away by children''s aid workers when the girl was only a toddler.  It is Christmastime 35 years later, and Anne''s yearning to see her now-grown daughter is stronger than ever.

When the family is finally reunited, however, the dreams of neither women are fulfilled.

The setting for the play is a fictional Ojibway community, but could be any reserve in Canada, where thousands of Native children were removed from their families in what is known among Native people as the "scoop-up" of the 1950s and 1960s.  Somedayis an entertaining, humourous, and spirited play that packs an intense emotional wallop.
