Bone Cage by Catherine Banks

Winner of the 2008 Governor General's Literary Award for Drama, Bone Cage is a rich, poetic and darkly humorous portrayal of life in rural Nova Scotia, where stripping the environment means stripping your soul. Jamie is twenty-two years old and works twelve-hour shifts operating a wood processor, clear-cutting for pulp. At the end of each shift, he walks through the destruction he has created looking for injured birds and animals and rescues those he can. Jamie's desire to escape this world is thwarted by his blue-collar circumstance and his own fear. Bone Cage examines how young people in rural communities, employed in the destruction of the environment they love, treat the people they love at the end of their shift. Bone Cage is about the difficulty in growing up and hanging on to dreams in a world where dreams are seen as impractical or weak. Tragic and funny, the play explores the notion of escape, and how a soul can be trapped in its own rib cage, a cage of bone, a Bone Cage.
