Cariboo Buckaroo

by Matthew Payne

This true tall tale of an 1860’s cattle drive full of surprise, magic and beans, explores three actual historical events in B.C. history, including the Chilcotin War of 1864.

Developed in partnership with the X’eni Gwet’in, this play includes epic cowboy poetry, water, and secrets for any children in attendance (recommended for ages 8+).
