The Black Bonspiel of Wullie MacCrimmon is a classic Canadian comedy by one of Saskatchewan's most beloved writers. Wullie is a small-town prairie shoemaker and avid curler who makes a deal with the Devil in order to win the Brier. The play culminates in a riotous curling match between Wullie MacCrimmon's rink and the Devil's team. See actors land their rocks on cue live on stage!
