Huron Wendat actor turns to director’s chair in Where the Blood Mixes

It’s a play Huron Wendat actor Charles Bender has a connection with as previously starred in it years ago.

Now he’s directing Where the Blood Mixes because he wants to bring the story to a new audience.

“That play stayed with me for a good eight years and the necessity to bring that story in French to people in Quebec, and not have them left out from such a beautiful play, was important to me,” said Bender.

The story, written by Kevin Loring, is about a residential school survivor named Floyd.

Floyd was content drowning his pain at the local tavern until he meets his daughter. She was adopted twenty years earlier and wants to reconnect with him.
