A Thousand Supperless Babes: The Story of the Metis is a theatrical play and interactive Compact Disc compilation, revealing the history of the Metis through story, song and dance. Set in New York City, far from the Metis homeland, A Thousand Supperless Babes tells a poignant history of a Nation, unfolding using the stories and experiences of Metis individuals and the reminiscences of Honore Jaxon, one of Louis Riel's secretaries. Through the use of cast monologues, this play promotes and preserves the tradition of Metis storytelling, as monologues have been created using stories of Metis history told to cast members by their ancestors. The compilation includes the play's script in both printed and electronic formats and an electronic Flash Presentation of historical images to be used throughout the performance. The compact disc also includes the musical score, performed by singer/songwriters Andrea Menard and Don Freed, accompanying sheet music, and other information that can be used by teachers and drama instructors to produce and perform A Thousand Supperless Babes: The Story of the Metis. Depending upon the theatre group or drama class, the script can easily be modified to include new stories based on cast member's family stories or other significant events in Metis history.
