The Big Hit

THE BIG HIT – a sparky French language comedy, winner of the European Film Awards Best Comedy. Etienne, a “resting” actor, works with an unlikely troupe of prisoners to stage Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot”. Clearly, a double mindbender of a challenge, but taking the inmate actors on tour is really something else again!

Tickets are available online starting April 6 through Eventbrite.ca or by clicking the button below.
