Here's what critics and audience members have been saying:

- Penny Orloff, Culture Spot LA

"To hear an individual's truth is always relevant, to face the truth, cathartic for all present."
- Audience member

"Dennis, who depicts all roles, is an animated and insightful storyteller."
- Deborah Klugman, LA Weekly

"All worth watching and more so, a fine one-man show."
- Roscoe Pond, Associated Content

TALES OF AN URBAN INDIAN (read carefully for a chance to win free tickets)

/ Leave a Comment


One-Man Show, Written and Performed by Darrell Dennis (Shuswap)
Premiered in 2009 at New York's The Public Theater

Saturday, March 13 - Sunday, March 28, 2010
(Previews begin Thursday, March 11)

Native Voices at the Autry, America's leading Native American theater company, continues its 10th Anniversary Season with the West Coast premiere of the critically applauded one-man show Tales of an Urban Indian by noted Canadian playwright/actor Darrell Dennis (Shuswap). Dennis, a veteran of the noted comedy school Second City, stars in the dark comedy directed by Herbie Barnes (Ojibway), which opens Saturday, March 13 and plays through Sunday, March 28, 2010 (previews begin Thursday, March 11).

Two special post-performance “Talk Back” programs, featuring an opportunity for the audience to talk with the playwright, are slated for Sunday, March 14 and Sunday, March 21. On March 14, Dennis will be joined by special guests Micah Ian Wright (Muscogee Creek) and Jason Gavin (Blackfeet), members of the American Indian Writers Committee for the Writers Guild of America, West.

Tales of an Urban Indian is produced by Native Voices at the Autry in association with New York's The Public Theater, which premiered the play last spring. The play is also the basis of a hit Canadian television show of the same name. Of the New York production, a New York Post critic proclaimed, "This semi-autobiographical tale of a young man's transition from reservation to the city amusingly counters our stereotypical notions of Indian life.” Village Voice's critic wrote, “Dennis has a lovely theatrical presence - charming, high-spirited, a little dorky, and a little anguished.” Backstage called Tales of an Urban Indian, "a searing blend of anger, pride, and resolution."

Tales of an Urban Indian portrays a life observed through the lens of a contemporary urban Indian making his way from the reservation to the city and experiencing his own unique (and often devastatingly hilarious) brand of culture shock. Dennis creates a sad, funny and always entertaining world where overcoming the odds is just the beginning.

Single tickets are $20 for general admission, $12 for Autry members and half price for previews, students, seniors 55+, and members of WGA, AFTRA, SAG, and AEA. Groups (10 or more), save 40%.

NATIVE VOICES is located at the Autry National Center of the American West, 4700 Western Heritage Way, Los Angeles, CA 90027-1462.
