A Musta-Be: Maskihkiy Maskwa Iskwew , written by U of A professor Jane Heather, pulls from the experiences of Yvonne Johnson, who served time at the Edmonton Institution for Women after being convicted of murder.

The play  will be performed at the Second Playing Space in the U of A’s Timms Centre for the Arts for three performances – June 24, 25 and 26 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door.
