THE MORNINGTIDE by Eli Chilton

May 14 @2PM – First Look Play

An elderly indigenous man, Solomon Peacewin, hunts on his grounds alone in the wilderness one spring. This seasons hunt brings plenty of challenges, surprises, and unexpected visitors even this far from his home community in The Morningtide.

Eli Chilton

I work and live in Moose Factory Ontario with my family. I was born and raised here in the James Bay area and lived here most of my life. I have worked here at our local radio station, CJFI 107.1 The Island Youth Radio since 2013, as a radio DJ and producer. Along with my radio duties, I also work at the youth center as a youth worker, helping with events and daily duties of the center. I have been an amateur writer most of my life, writing plays, screenplays, poetry, and short stories. In regard to my poetry, I have had two poems published in the Poetry Institute of Canada’s publication in 2010 and 2011. I also had a live reading with Pat The Dog Theatre at their festival Playsmelter in 2017. Living in the far north, I have been an outdoorsman in some capacity my whole life. Hunting and fishing with my family throughout my life, but also, hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing around the area of Moose Factory and Moosonee.
