Peter Fechter: 59 Minutes – Presented by Matchstick Theatre

March 1 @ 8:00 pm - March 4 @ 10:00 pm

Matchstick Theatre proudly presents its production of Jordan Tannahill’s Governor General’s award-winning play Peter Fechter: 59 Minutes, this March at The Bus Stop Theatre Co-op.

Half documentary, Peter Fechter: 59 Minutes tells the very real story of two boys who attempt to join the many who defected into West Berlin by crossing the Berlin Wall. The attempt, however, results in eighteen-year-old Peter getting shot in the lower pelvis. He lay between the border’s barricades for approximately an hour before dying from this injury. Half conceptualization, Tannahill expertly navigates these fifty-nine minutes from gunshot to final breath, exploring what could possibly have motivated Peter to risk his life to cross the wall. What can matter to us so much that we risk everything for it?

The play stars Peter SartyHenricus GielisAndrew Chandler, and Rena Kossatz. The play is directed by Alison Crosby, stage managed byChelsea Dickie, produced by Alex Mills, and designed by Wesley BabcockJordan PalmerAnna Shepard, and Emma Roode.

Tickets are $15 ($12 for students, seniors, underwaged, and Bus Stop Co-op members) and can be booked in advance through Ticket Halifax, or by contacting matchsticktheatre@gmail.com
