Two grown sisters face off over their mother's deathbed. Together they confront one another, their own identities, and what will remain when their mom leaves this world. A contemporary look at the significance of faith and family, Honour Beat evokes both laughter and tears as three women grapple with one of life's most difficult inevitabilities.

Born in Niitsitapi country, Beagan is a proud Ntlaka'pamux and Irish "Canadian" halfbreed. She has written more than twenty plays, and also directs and performs. Currently, she co-helms ARTICLE 11 with her most cherished collaborator, favourite artist and true love, Andy Moro. A11, now based in Mohkintsis, has brought Indigenous Activist art works to the NAC, the ROM, Kingcome Inlet, Kamloops, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary's city hall, Edinburgh Fringe, and Wellington, Aotearoa (NZ).

"Honour Beat is an important work of art...celebrates -- honours --women as the givers and sustainers of life...The ending is extraordinary." -Globe & Mail "The final uplifting, spiritual moments of \i Honour Beat \i0 will linger with you long after you've left the theatre...the beautiful sentiments at the heart of the play. \i -Calgary Herald\i0
