Set during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Fairly Traceable follows the journeys of a young Ponca man and a Chitimacha woman as they juggle personal and career ambitions with advocacy for the environment and the people they love. In this romantic dramedy, award-winning Cherokee playwright Mary Kathryn Nagle reveals the culpability of corporate polluters and climate change deniers in environmental disasters. In the discussion directly following the play, Native leaders will discuss the performance and its significance.
