The Show

Based on a true story, this play is a fascinating, humane exploration of a little-known chapter in Canadian military history: the role of the Royal Air Force at Bergen Belsen Concentration Camp post-liberation, and one man's desire to work outside the rules to effect compassionate change.

This one-man show, which took home awards at both the Toronto and Montreal Fringe Festivals in 2007, features Brendan McMurtry-Howlett performing over 20 characters in this powerful not-to-be-missed production.
