Marthe Cohn Speaks              Jan. 10 

TCU Place

Her story quite easily reads like a movie script. Marthe Cohn was a beautiful young woman when Hitler rose to power, her sister was sent to Auschwitz and she and her family fled to the South of France. That’s when Marthe decided to fight back. She posed as a German nurse pretending to be searching for her German fiancé all the while gathering intelligence for the Allied forces. Marthe survived and wrote a memoire about her experience. She now tours the world sharing her story. Tickets are $20 -$100

Monday Night            Jan. 10 – 20 

The Refinery

There are a handful of moments in history that people can tell you exactly where they were or what they were doing when they heard tragic or life changing news. One of those moments is the night John Lennon was shot in New York City. Monday Night is a play that follows several people’s individual stories on the night John Lennon was shot. This is a brand-new play by Todd Devonshire and it’s making its world premiere right here in Saskatoon. Tickets are $22 – $25
