The Moonlight Sonata of Beethoven Blatz is Armin’s latest Gutenthal story written for stage and produced by Theatre Projects Manitoba.
Turnstone Press and Theatre Projects invite all authors, readers, friends, and fans of Armin Wiebe to join us on Friday, April 15 for a post-show reception. While we nosh, playwright and novelist Bob Armstrong will moderate a talk-back discussion with Armin, exploring the relationship between Armin’s Gutenthal novels and his new play.
Turnstone Press has published Armin Wiebe’s Gutenthal novels since 1984 starting with The Salvation of Yasch Siemens, which was shortlisted for both the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour and the Books in Canada First Novel Award. Murder in Gutenthal: A Schneppa Kjnals Mystery, and The Second Coming of Yeeat Shpanst continued the legacy of side-ripping laughter and unpronounceable Mennonite names.
