About This Show

Multi “Best of Fringe” winner Howard Petrick’s solo performance about the life of V.R. Dunne, an American labor leader and revolutionary. It is presented as Dunne himself addressing a group of young people in 1969 on the thirty-fifth anniversary of the 1934 Minneapolis truck drivers strikes.

“Dunne was a fascinating character and Petrick is an expert storyteller. Go see his performance, you will not be disappointed.” – Winnipeg Free Press

“It’s not just the forgotten history that makes V.R. Dunne so engrossing it’s the urgent, timely message that the man brings.” – Edmonton Journal
