Montana Repertory Theater Presents a Staged Reading of the new play, “Can’t Drink Saltwater,” which spotlights the Missing and Murdered Indigenous People Epidemic.

“Can’t Drink Salt Water” by Kendra Mylnechuk Potter is a gripping play juxtaposing a mother’s relentless search to find her missing daughter with the journey of a young woman newly arrived at Bethel House, an evangelical shelter for victims of sex trafficking. Weaving together Native tradition, maternal grief, contemporary religious faith, humor, and a call to action, the reading is recommended for adult audiences. A conversation with the playwright and director will follow. Resources and more information on MMIP will be available in the lobby before and after the reading.

Preceding the reading, the play will undergo an intensive week-long workshop led by guest director Pirronne Yousefzadeh on the University of Montana campus. The public reading will be held in the Montana Theatre on Sunday, November 19 at 4:00 pm.

The workshop for “Can’t Drink Salt Water” is made possible by a generous grant from The Roy Cockrum Foundation. For tickets and more information about “Can’t Drink Salt Water,” please visit montanarep.com or call 406-243-6809.
