It's a story that sweeps itself into the heart of a Saskatchewan curling fan.

On Wednesday night, Regina’s Globe Theatre opened its season with a preview of The Black Bonspiel of Wullie MacCrimmon.

It follows a curler who makes a deal involving his soul with the devil to win the Brier.

Cavan Cunningham -- the former mayor on Corner Gas-- plays the role of the Malleable Charlie Brown.

“Wullie MacCrimmon is basically offered the chance to fulfill his dream by the devil. The puts up his soul as a wager,” said Cunningham.

The devil is played by Globe Theatre regular Joey Tremblay, who is someone Cunningham says has a surprising amount of curling knowledge.

“He was able to coach us on a lot of the positions of the rock and what was a good shot,” said Cunningham.

The play is on at the Globe Theatre (1801 Scarth St.) until Oct. 16.
