Summary
"Political, intellectual and passionate, George Ryga was a playwright who had a sense of social justice and an even keener sense of social injustice. He wrote plays with the intent to make a difference: not just move an educated people, but to make people take direct action. Thus his play, "The ecstasy of Rita Joe" written with grit and unbending purpose, brought Ryga into the international spotlight. At home, he made a deep mark on the psyche of all who watched the plight of Rita Joe, as she depicted the disadvantaged, the distained, the Indian in North America."--Container
