Manitoba Theatre Centre presents The Shunning at The John Hirsch Theatre Mainstage from February 9th through March 5th. Tickets range from $35 to $70 depending on age, date and seat section.

Here is an excerpt from the MTC website:

Peter is trying to live a good life. But when the Mennonite farmer begins to challenge church teachings, the religious leaders decide to punish him with solitude. No one in his family or community will be allowed any contact with him until he repents, forcing his wife to abandon him if not in person, then in spirit. As the domestic and community pressure forces him into isolation, he refuses to stop questioning.

Manitoba playwright Patrick Friesen weaves a tangled web between faith and the faithful, introducing a new generation to his lyrical masterpiece.
