    About this event

    Muscogee leader Ella Jean Hill traces her family's history from the Trail of Tears to her grandfather's allotment in central Oklahoma. In an astonishing one-woman play, she shares her story—the Native boarding school she fled on foot, her marriage to a young Bengali scholar, and the advocacy that became her life's work. With On the Far End, a reference to the landmark 2020 Supreme Court opinion in McGirt v. Oklahoma that upheld the sovereignty of the Muscogee territories, one of America's leading playwrights (Sovereignty; Manahatta) weaves a deeply personal account of one family—her own mother-in-law's—and a legacy of broken promises between nations. (A Round House Theatre Equal Play Commission. Part of the National Capital New Play Festival.)
