A mashup of comedy, music and poetic monologues, Mission Potluck brings to the stage the story of a Lutheran Ladies League’s ill-fated fundraising efforts in Gimli in the 1920s. This perfectly devised ensemble piece is inspired by the true story of First Lutheran’s (Winnipeg) fundraising efforts to build Gimli’s first seniors home in the early part of the century. One Trunk Theatre flips history on its head in this play collectively created and performed by comediennes Claire Therese Friesen, Gwendolyn Collins, Andraea Sartison, Jacqueline Harding and Anna-Laure Koop.
