The Stratford Festival is making its Edinburgh debut with the hit production of “Hirsch,” a new one-man show about the late Hungarian -Canadian theatre icon.
John Hirsch created the Manitoba Theatre Centre, ran the Stratford Festival and the CBC Drama department and directed on and off Broadway.

Created by award-winning actor Alon Nashman and Governor General’s Award-winning director Paul Thompson, “Hirsch” premiered at the Stratford Festival in 2012.
Before its Edinburgh debut it runs for one performance only at The Berekely Street Theatre, Friday July 19th at 8:00 pm.
