Greygrass's one-man plays

“Walking on Turtle Island” and “Ghostlands of an Urban NDN” at the Autry

By Pauline AdamekTwo one-man plays, written by and starring acclaimed actor and storyteller Robert Owens-Greygrass (Lakota*), will run in repertory during March, presented by Native Voices at the Autry.

Rich with contemporary and historical elements, Walking on Turtle Island portrays Indigenous experience through the stories and culture of Turtle Island. Ghostlands of an Urban NDN provides a gritty and humorous look at the conflicting worlds of a mixed-race heritage.
