Sam's Spiel

July 29, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
The Winnipeg Trolley Company presents Sam's Spiel
a new one-person play by Danny Schur
Play premieres on a moving Heritage Trolley! 

Starring Justin Schafer as Sam Lockhart

Departing from the Winnipeg Free Press News Cafe, 237 McDermot at Arthur. 
$25 / ticket.   Advance tickets only. 
Contact Benjamin Gilles at 226-8687 or Danny Schur at 227-1167.

It's June 21, 1919.  Photographer Sam Lockhart wants the shot that will earn him the money to patent his revolutionary new camera.   Will the simmering Winnipeg General Strike crush his dream or provide him with an opportunity?

Travel back to 1919 as journalist of the era, as you rove the streets of Winnipeg with 
Sam Lockhart on the day that would come to be known as "Bloody Saturday". 

Enjoy lunch at the Winnipeg Free Press Cafe, prior to the performance (meal extra) 
and join Schur for an after-performance discussion. 

The Winnipeg Trolley Company heritage trolley, with its striking orange and cream 
colour-scheme, has been refurbished to resemble a Winnipeg streetcar, circa 1921.
