Jeremy is currently writing and developing his second play titled Fallen Feather (Working Title), partly based on the stories of the many missing and murdered First Nation youth, also known as the 'seven fallen feathers', who were all from the city of Thunder Bay, the community of Fort William, First Nation and remote First Nation communities in the surrounding area of northern Ontario. This is a very important piece of work that will hopefully tour throughout many First Nation communities in the near future. Stay tuned!
