A mashup of comedy, music and poetic monologues, Mission Potluck brings to the stage the story of a Lutheran Ladies’ League 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.
Mission Potluck gives audiences an entertaining and heart-wrenching reflection of a familiar Canadian story…. with an Icelandic twist. Mission Potluck is a perfect recipe for entertainment combining local history with physical comedy, and familiar hymns with the pop music of the day.
