Save on Early-Bird Tickets

Wullie MacCrimmon is in the fictional small town of Wildrose Alberta in the 1930s, where he lives to curl. He and his rink are so expert the Devil herself makes Wullie an offer hard to resist. The Devil (also a keen curler) promises Wullie that he'll win the Brier -- if on his death, Wullie will contract to come and curl in hell for the Devil’s team in the Celestial Brier.

Wullie makes the Faustian deal -- but with the proviso that he will save his soul if he and his Wildrose rink can beat the Devil's rink in a challenge match. And so, Wullie and his friends -- with the help of the Reverend Pringle -- take on the Devil's crew of Judas Iscariot, Macbeth and Guy Fawkes in the most crucial curling match of all time, a matter of after-life and death.
