Wacousta! is a tale of adventure, intrigue, mystery, and love set in 1763 at the British forts of Detroit and Michilimackinac. The story was first told by Major John Richardson in a novel written in 1832. Within two years it had become an internationally famous romance, whose appeal has lasted down to the present day. This nineteenth-century story thrilled audiences with accounts of sieges, family feuds, romantic love and, most of all, revenge. Now James Reaney has taken this thrilling romance and reworked it into a contemporary play, filled with colour, adventure, comedy and the exaggerated passions of melodrama.
