The Black Bonspiel of Wullie MacCrimmon is a comedy, written by Saskatchewan author W.O. Mitchell, about a small town shoemaker and avid curler. 

MacCrimmon, played by Saskatoon native John Wright, would do anything to win The Brier — even make a deal with the devil. In the final match of the bonspiel, he goes head to head with the evil spirit. 

The play, directed by Scott Bellis, begins tomorrow in Saskatoon and runs until December 15.
