About Our Auction

This fundraising auction is to help with expenses for the Sisu Theatre Society production of "No Wonder!" by Matti Kurikka.

"No Wonder!" is a one-act comedy written in 1885 while Matti Kurikka was in Helsinki, Finland. The play is a romantic romp of mistaken identity.

Rehearsals begin mid-February, with the production presented at the Finnish Organization Hall May 12, 13 and 14, 2023.

Expenses for this production include:
- Rehearsal Hall Rental
- FO Hall Rental
- Costume rental, materials (from hats to shoes to bustles)
- Set materials and build (wood, paint, fabric, etc)
- Props materials and construction
- Printing programs, posters, scripts, tickets
- Technical equipment rental (lighting, sound, recording)

Matti Kurikka (1863-1915) is best known in Finnish and Finnish-Canadian history as the charismatic utopian socialist who founded the Sointula communal settlement in BC in 1901, and as an important figure in the turn-of-the-century Finnish labour movement. But he also wrote plays in an early stage of his life. "Ihme Kos Tuo!" (No Wonder!) premiered in 1885.
