When debuted in Gimli in the summer of 2015, Mission Potluck was an immediate hit. One Trunk Theatre takes the show back on the road, kicking off where the real story first began at First Lutheran Church in Winnipeg before touring to Gimli, Riverton and Arborg.
It is with great pleasure that nuna (now) and One Trunk Theatre co-present Mission Potluck — uniquely crafted for each location, it gives rural audiences an entertaining and heart-wrenching reflection of their own stories and towns… with an Icelandic twist. A mashup of comedy, music and poetic monologues, Mission Potluck brings to the stage the true story of a Lutheran Ladies League’s ill-fated fundraising efforts in Gimli in the 1920s. Collectively created and performed by comediennes Claire Therese Friesen, Gwendolyn Collins, Andraea Sartison, Jacqueline Harding and Anna-Laure Koop the group ingeniously flips history on its head!
