Iron Peggy

Artwork by Jenny Breukelman

Peg is struggling for survival at her boarding school. Three girls take aim at Peg and make her life utterly miserable. When her beloved Grandmother dies she just wants to disappear but then an unexpected gift arrives. Inside Peg finds three Canadian cast iron soldiers. In despair, she throws them against the floor. How can they help her? They are so small and the girls’ shadow is so big. But, miraculously the toys come to life, as Indigenous Snipers from WWI, just in time to wage an epic battle against the girls.

A multi-media feast that will appeal to audiences both young and old, Iron Peggy uses a creative and ever-surprising blend of live performance, animations, video and shadows to tell this moving story.

With 2018 marking the 100th year anniversary of WWI, Iron Peggy is an excellent introduction to its history and a touching testimony that not only celebrates the First Nation participation in the war effort but also a young girl’s personal victory. World Premiere!
