Place and Time

The entire action of the play takes place in a small, isolated Eskimo village, Little Whale River, and in the forest, a few days inland. It is located in the Hudson Bay area of Canada.

The time is long before the white man had been seen, a time when spirits and the Shaman, or the Wise Man, ruled.

Director's notes

"From the East Coast Hudson Bay Eskimos comes this exciting, authentic tale of a pale-haired child, exiled by her own people because she was "the different one...Anatou." In a village ruled by spirits, Shamans, superstition and myth, such a different one has no place. During a famine, in which her parents disappear in a storm, Anatou is cast out. She seeks out the forest, where no Eskimo goes, and begs the Wood God to turn her into a wolf."

"It is an honor to direct The Ice Wolf by Johanna Halpert Krause at the Blue Heron Art Center. Messages in this play speak to audiences of all ages. We all wish to be accepted for our differences and celebrated for our uniquenesses. The Blue Heron Youth Theatre is an excellent medium to explore social issues of rejection, acceptance, and a deep understanding of how choices we make affect others. I wish to thank an outstanding group of actors, musicians, and technicians. Their dedication to this performance and willingness to explore their own personal "uniquenessess" will create indelible memories for all."
