Wrecking Ball II: Civic Election 2010: The State of Our City

Not satisfied with the theatrics of the Sam and Judy show to date?

Winnipeg writers, actors, and directors are leaping to the stage for a one-night only event of piping hot political theatre, as Wrecking Ball II swings into action! 

Check it out on Monday, October 25, at Prairie Theatre Exchange, Unit Y300 – 393 Portage Avenue, from 8:00 p. m. to 10:00 p. m.

Pay What You Can at the Door!

Will our writers come up with a second idea for Judy’s 2% campaign? 
Will “The Buck Stops Here” Sam be handed yet more names to blame for his every shortcoming? 
Do our crystal ball gazers see us actually riding a dedicated busway, bike routes free of protesters, dizzy from traffic circles, or do we all end up with a police chopper in every port?

A hand-picked draft of playwrights, including Bruce McManus, Sarah Constible, Al Rae, Debbie Patterson and Jane Testar, will create brief plays inspired by the civic election. 
The Wrecking Ball’s only goal is to challenge and provoke. 
All the plays will be no more than a week old, so you know the theatre’s gonna smell fresh!

Proceeds will support the future Winnipeg Performing Arts Lodge, a retirement community now in the planning stages for Manitoba musicians, dancers, actors, playwrights, and directors.

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