A Hit Comedy That Hurries Hard

Inspired by the local refugee resettlement program, a small town organizes a Learn-to-Curl class to welcome newcomers. But when its organizer slips on the ice and breaks her hip, the rink’s ice maker and former champion curler Stuart MacPhail is forced to step in as head coach. Trouble is, Stuart has some strong opinions about immigrants…

What follows is an inspiring and hilarious story of a group of would-be athletes who face off against local prejudice and claim their identity as “new Canadians”. From the writer of Bed & Breakfast and The Birds & the Bees comes this hit comedy about burning rocks, bonspiel beers, and becoming a team. 

In co-production with Western Canada Theatre, Kamloops, BC
