THE BIG FUNK (READING)

PAL/ACTRA

Tom Hendry Warehouse
140 Rupert Ave
Wheelchair accessible


The characters speak directly to the audience to claim their favoured role as either hero or villain. As they tell their stories – the knife thrower who cannot hit the dot, his miraculously pregnant wife, the out-of-work actor and the neurotic who keeps reliving her past – they reveal their concerns to be both serious and absurd. Five of Winnipeg’s best professional actors present this reading as a benefit for PAL, to support the creation of a Performing Arts Lodge.

“The best you can hope to do, to speed along the possibilities of life, is approach another human being, be naked, and hold up a good mirror.”

Director: Megan McArton
