Event Description

Listening for Grace – Winnipeg, MB

Ted Swartz's most in-demand show, Listening for Grace, is coming to Winnipeg on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 at 7:30 pm at Canadian Mennonite University, 500 Shaftesbury Blvd, Winnipeg, MB R3P 2N2. Admission is $10 ($5 students). For tickets, please call 204-487-3300 or email cbraun@cmu.ca

This latest play by Ted Swartz is a funny, powerful, poignant performance which gives voice to our fears and hopes when a faith community engages in questions around same sex relationships. A father's journey, a church's struggle, a search for commonality.

Listening for Grace follows the story of a widowed father whose son has just come out as gay. Through his relationships with his son, an estranged cousin, people in his church and a pastor who deals with issues of sexuality in the Bible, the main character is challenged by many different viewpoints and experiences.

It’s a piece about church. It’s a piece about fatherhood. It’s a piece about community. It’s a piece about our sexuality. And it’s an entertaining and enlightening piece about openness and love.
