The big theatres may have wrapped up their seasons, but there's still lots happening on Winnipeg's stages.
Here's a look at three events coming up this week for theatre fans:
Father and son team bring acclaimed American play to Winnipeg
It's been hailed as a contender for "the best new American drama of the first decade of this century" by the New York Times. And the local premiere of Kenneth Lonergan's Lobby Hero comes to the stage this week, courtesy of indie company The 28th Minute (who were behind the hit production of Orphans at last year's Fringe Festival).
Lonergan is a highly-regarded writer (he co-wrote the screenplay for the movie Gangs of New York), but we haven't seen his work here since a 2003 Fringe production of his other hit play, This Is Our Youth.
Lobby Hero runs at the Forest Nickerson Theatre (Deaf Centre Manitoba Inc.) from May 22 - 26.
