400 Kilometres is the third play in Drew Hayden Taylor's hilarious and heart-wrenching identity-politics trilogy. Janice Wirth, a thirty-something urban professional, having discovered her roots as the Ojibway orphan Grace Wabung in Someday , and having visited her birth family on the Otter Lake Reserve in Only Drunks and Children Tell the Truth , is pregnant, and must now come to grips with the question of her "true identity." Her adoptive parents have just retired, and are about to sell their house to embark on a quest for their own identity by "returning" to England. Meanwhile, the Native father of her child-to-be is attempting to convince Janice/Grace that their new generation's future lies with their "own people" at Otter Lake.

Which path for the future is Janice/Grace to choose, for herself, her families and her child, having spent a lifetime caught between the questions of "what I am" and "who I am"?

Cast of 3 women and 2 men.
