After a premiere at the Summerworks festival in 2015 to huge critical acclaim, followed by a workshop of the piece by Toronto’s esteemed VideoCabaret. In keeping with VideoCab’s vivid re-imaginings of Canadian History, Genevieve Adam has borrowed from Canada’s little told story of Les Filles du Roi (King’s Daughters) and spun a dark and sexy historical romance that examines the tale through the unique perspective of history’s oft forgotten voices: women and First Nations Peoples. Set in 1667 Quebec, Deceitful Above All Things, is not the Canadian history of your grade seven textbook.
