The “gut-wrenching and emotionally-charged” life of theatre giant John Hirsch premieres this year in Hirsch at the The Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre (MTC)! Orphaned at 13, Hungarian refugee John Hirsch searches for a home and chooses a place far from danger – Winnipeg. He also finds a home in the world of theatre, where his fierce talent, stormy temperament and uncompromising drive propel him to great heights. As with any exceptional artist, there are casualties along the way. In thrilling performance, Alon Nashman brings Hirsch home to MTC. November 28 - December 14, 2013 The Tom Hendry Theatre at the MTC Warehouse For more information and to find tickets, visit MTC.
