Book Description400 Kilometres is the third play in Drew Hayden Taylor's hilarious and heart-wrenching identity-politics trilogy. Janice Wirth, a thirty-something urban professional, having discovered her roots as the Ojibway orphan Grace Wabung in Someday, and having visited her birth family on the Otter Lake Reserve in Only Drunks and Children Tell the Truth, is pregnant, and must now come to grips with the question of her "true identity." Her adoptive parents have just retired, and are about to sell their house to embark on a quest for their own identity by "returning" to England. Meanwhile, the Native father of her child-to-be is attempting to convince Janice/Grace that their new generation's future lies with their "own people" at Otter Lake. Which path for the future is Janice/Grace to choose, for herself, her families and her child, having spent a lifetime caught between the questions of "what I am" and "who I am"? Cast of 3 women and 2 men.

His plays have garnered many prestigious awards, and his beguiling and perceptive storytelling style has enthralled audiences in Canada, the United States and Germany.
