Aqua Books: Padre X

As part of 
Best of Fest 2010, the Winnipeg Fringe hit Padre X, starring Marc Moir, will be performed at Aqua Books on August 26.  

The play begins at 7:00 p. m. and runs to 8:30 p. m.
Tickets are $10.

Marc Moir's Padre X is the amazing true story of John Weir Foote, the only Canadian Army chaplain to win the Victoria Cross for valor during WWII.  The play begins in 1948 at a train station in Ontario.  While waiting for a delayed train, Foote recalls his years in the army, his experiences at Dieppe, and the three years he spent as a prisoner of war. 

This is a remarkable story of an extrordinary man. 
This is the first time his story has ever really been told.

Have a great day.  How can you miss - you're in Winnipeg!
