In a small town jail cell just outside Yellowstone National Park, an east coast social justice worker awaits her arraignment. Her crime? Calfnapping. When she finds herself with a dead baby bison, its mother, and a local rancher as her cell mates, shes forced to reckon with her worldview. In The Buffalo Play wildness takes over, women and buffalos dish on sex, guts become armor, and media is an unavoidable storm.  Inspired by true events, The Buffalo Play poses the question, "What kind of an idiot puts a baby bison in the back of their car?

Starring Ciara Rose Griffin, Kendra Mylnechuk Potter, Sukha Belle Potter, and Jeremy Sher
