Performance Line-Up

At the Gate by Sandra Drag
Performed by Elena Anciro
A remarkable woman’s tale of wrestling a family away from a horrific car accident. Poetically and ambiguously weaved, the story is related with increasing difficulty, until the truth unfolds.

Of Heart and Tree by Christine Rodriguez
Performed by Shanley Jardine
A mother attempts to make sense of her autistic son’s life through this heart-wrenching story

Zelda with a Z, by Frances Koncan
Performed by Kim Kakegamic
The audience becomes… the audience, of a talk show! Zelda with a Z, is an exuberant and flustered host as she talks to us about her life with writer F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Glory Bound by Scott Douglas
Performed by Samantha Walters
A comic book come to life! Glory Girl attempts to escape her captors, but is she really bound against her will?

Loretta by Step Taylor
Performed by Lorraine James
Loretta lies to her drug addict son about losing her job so that he can focus on passing his exams and graduating, but the jig is now up.

An Inheritance by Jennica Grienke
Performed by Liz Whitbread
Get to know a little girl struggling with the death of her mother and a new understanding of what her father truly is. Meet a young woman, angry with God, and faced with a horrifying decision. Now meet Ida, reliving her trauma in the hopes of healing before it’s too late.

John Fubbister (also known as Isobel Gun) by Sandy Klowak
Performed by Mallory James
They said it was impossible- that the grueling work of a fur trader in the wilds of Rupert’s Land would break a European woman like a twig. Not if Isobel Gunn has anything to say about it.

Mutated by Carly Pokoradi
Performed by Jenna Jenna Leanne Hill
Travel the world! Go on adventures! Have a f$*k ton of… well, never mind. Bea’s exciting life plans are put on hold when she’s faced with a life-altering situation.

Urban Nun by Dave Carley

Probably the coolest nun at the convent in her day, this wildly rebellious woman reveals her thoughts on life and God through her time at the nun retreat.

Cross-Posting: Winter Walk

Hi there, Out There Hikers.

There have been a few requests that we organize a winter walk.  Here is our proposal:

A walk along the River Trail (on the Red River) from the Forks toward St Vital Bridge.

When:  Saturday, February 28 at 1 pm

Where:  We will meet at the Forks Market, in the in the glassed in area just south of the elevator, near the food court.

We will follow the River Trail, inspecting the winners of this year’s warming hut competition along the way.  This year`s river trail is 6 km long.  However, we will follow the consensus about how far we should walk before turning back to the Forks.

We can have hot chocolate together when we get back to the Forks.

If you would be interested in joining us, please “sign up” by emailing Thomas at tnovak@mymts.net

(Should there be a storm that day or the trail unexpectedly closes early, we will send out a note of cancellation.)

Looking forward to seeing many of you there!

Thomas and Cheryl,

Coordinators, Out There Hiking
