Women’s Rebels basketball team in new league — more competitive: coach

Rebels women’s home game this Friday in new athletic conference BY HANNAH OWCZAR The long-running champion Red River Rebels women’s basketball team faces new hurdles as they compete in a brand-new conference this season. Pangilinan said in past years, the team has played in the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference only, where they have won the championship six years running. However, the MCAC is less competitive this year, as there are now just three teams that play in the conference, compared to last year when there were five. As a result, Pangilinan entered his team in the Northern Intercollegiate Athletic...

Great games, no attendance

Pathetic attendance at World Juniors casts shadow over tournament BY DECLAN SCHROEDER I always look forward World Juniors, and this year was no exception. After all, binging on youth hockey between Boxing Day and early January is as engrained in Canadian culture as Tim Hortons, Kraft Dinner, and mumbling phonetically to the portion of ‘O Canada’ frequently sung in French at sporting events. It’s my favourite tournament of the year. 2018’s edition didn’t disappoint, at least from an on-ice standpoint. As always, it featured high-flying future stars from around the globe, which this year, included Swedish wunderkind Rasmus Dahlin,...

ShanleyFest honours underdogs

Master Playwright Festival to feature works by Pulitzer-prize winning writer John Patrick Shanley BY GRAEME HOUSSIN This year’s Master Playwright Festival is giving theatregoers a glimpse into the lives of the downtrodden and out-of-place by honouring the dramatic works of John Patrick Shanley. Shanley, an Irish-American playwright and screenwriter, is one of only two other artists to win a Pulitzer Prize, an Oscar and a Tony Award. “Shanley gives voice to the misfit as he explores community, family, and the search for love within the magic forces surrounding us,” said festival producer Chuck McEwen. “He asks who are we? On what am I built?” The Master Playwright Festival, an annual theatre event, was created in 2001 by the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre. Every year the festival honours a playwright whose work may not be known to a Winnipeg audience. This year’s festival, dubbed ShanleyFest after its chosen honouree, will feature 11 full productions by Winnipeg theatre companies as well as two play readings, three films and two lectures, all about or written by Shanley. One of Shanley’s earlier plays, Savage in Limbo, is being produced by Vault Projects. It features an all-female cast of five characters in a Bronx bar, bored with their monotonous lives. “There’s a real ambivalence and moral ambiguity in this play that’s really familiar to me as a young person in today’s world,” said Frances Koncan,...
