Can't Drink Salt Water: A Staged Reading Description:
Montana Repertory Theater Workshops New Play, “Can’t Drink Saltwater,” sheds light on the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Crisis.

The Montana Repertory Theatre proudly announces a staged reading of Can’t Drink Saltwater, a powerful new play by local indigenous playwright Kendra Mylnechuk Potter [Lummi]. Continuing its commitment to developing new works, the Montana Repertory Theatre brings a new play workshop that voices the ongoing tragedy of missing and murdered indigenous women (MMIW).

Can’t Drink Saltwater tells a gripping story of a missing daughter and a mother who pushes beyond her human limits to find her. The play explores where we go when we can no longer remain in our bodies. Through this poignant narrative, Potter sheds light on the pressing issue of MMIW and its impact on indigenous communities.

Can’t Drink Salt Water will be workshopped for a week prior to the staged reading with guest director Pirronne Yousefzadeh on the University of Montana campus. The workshop will culminate in a public reading at the Montana Theatre on Sunday, November 19th, at 4:00 pm. This reading provides a unique opportunity for audiences to witness the play's evolution.
