Richard III starring Debbie Patterson
We provide chairs and you follow from scene to scene.
Richard will be played by Debbie Patterson, an artist with MS whose real life struggle will lend her a unique insight into Richard’s own struggles.
What do you do when you’re born disabled and your mother hates you for it? When your brothers see you as only good for menial tasks despite your obvious sensitivity and intelligence? When you’ve fought through 18 years of a bloody civil war? What do you do when your brother finally becomes king? You turn your gaze to the family and the culture that taught you to crush your conscience and abandon your humanity, and you show it just what it is to suffer.
We’re examining Richard as an evil that’s been created by the twisted gaze of those who look at his body. As the play progresses, his disability becomes contagious – he damages or destroys everyone who stands in his way. By the end, he is surrounded by a chorus of the damaged and the dead.
Beer raffle tickets available at our shows, $5 each, to win $500 worth of beer from around the world.
Better Than Baba's will be a the St. Norbert Ruins after the 2:30 pm matinee and before the 7:30 pm evening show on June 11 and 25 from 5 - 7:30 pm. Their perogies are delicious!
June 10, 5 to 8 pm / June 11 & 12, 2 to 5 pm

Jenn's Furry Friends Rescue is a registered and incorporated non-profit organization. Started in 2012 to help rescue dogs, cats, and other furry creatures, it is run by a passionate volunteer base dedicated to helping unwanted and homeless animals get connected with their forever families. As we do not have a "bricks and mortar" building the way some shelters do, we rely on the assistance of animal lovers in the Winnipeg area to provide temporary housing for these animals.
We have been in an intake freeze for a couple of months now due to growing vet bills. While I'd like to say they are slowly going down, I can't. Rusty is still baffling the vets with his anemia and odd blood work. Scamp is being treated for mange and Mindy is about to begin her heartworm treatment. We desperately need help. Thank you ~ Jenn and team
