Toronto play highlights Inuit experience

Factory Theatre in Toronto is presenting Night by Canadian playwright and director Christopher Morris. The play examines the North's precarious relationship with the South through the eyes of a 16-year-old Inuk girl played by Tiffany Ayalik. The Link's correspondent Lyne-Francoise Pelletier met the actor to talk about the play, her character and the story that unfolds over 24 hours of darkness in Pond Inlet, Nunavut.
