Kentucky comedian Paul Strickland is back in this sequel to last year’s Winnipeg Fringe Festival hit, Ain’t True & Uncle False. This time, the charming and gracious storyteller shares a poignant, heart-wrenching love story that transpired at Big Fib trailer park.
It's here, "the story goes," legendary musician Papa Squat wooed quirky trailer park resident Rue Morhazit with his "store of sorts" and eventually won her heart. This hour-long fictitious (or is it?) tale with inspirational musical interludes by the talented Strickland is a must-see for all romantics, and others, at this year's festival.
