With “Kamloopa: An Indigenous Matriarch Story,” Canadian Indigenous playwright Kim Senklip Harvey (Syilx and Tsilhqot’in Nation) has given us a thoughtful comedy about two sisters who, over the course of the play, come into their own as they each claim their power and heritage as Indigenous women. With all its cultural and human richness and theatrical opportunity, “Kamloopa” deserves better treatment than it is getting in director Estefanía Fadul’s loosely formed, hit-and-largely miss production for WAM Theatre, which opened over the weekend, with an all-Indigenous female cast, in Shakespeare & Company’s Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre.
