This powerful two-act play reveals the hidden story of the Aboriginal runners who carried the torch to the 1967 Pan-American Games at Winnipeg. Denied access to the stadium at that time, in 1999 the surviving runners received an apology from the Province and a standing ovation from the crowd. Laura Robinson has worked closely with surviving frontrunners to create a script that begins when they were boys in residential school. The play forms the basis for the film of the same title, to be distributed by the NFB.
The book includes full text of the script, the playwright’s notes, cast lists, and still photographs.
FrontRunners on DVD is now distributed through the National Film Board.
