This Is the Story of the Child Ruled By Fear by David Gagnon Walker

April 28-30, 2023

Théâtre Cercle Molière – 340 Provencher Blvd


After their successful runs across the country including High Performance Rodeo, and SummerWorks, we are so excited to welcome Strange Victory Performance to Winnipeg for the Manitoba premiere of this experimental theatre collaboration with audiences.

David has written a play for himself and a gathering of friends and strangers to read together out loud. It’s the story of the rise and fall of an imaginary civilization in an imaginary land. A poetic fable about how to live with the slowly unfolding emergencies of our world, it’s also an invitation to join in on the artistic process, and a testament to the power of a roomful of people discovering a new story together.

Participate according to your own comfort – read for a character, join the chorus, or sit back and watch – and join this humorous, cathartic exploration of our innermost private fears.

Meet the Artistic Team!
