Bunny - 2016

The year in theatre: A versatile and creative 2016 | Toronto Star

Hannah Moscovitch’s first new play after she won the prestigious Donald Windham-Sandy M. Campbell Literature Prize (worth $150,000 U.S.) in March could not have served as better proof of her worthiness of such international accolades. Bunny premiered in August at the Stratford Festival, introducing late-summer theatregoers to Sorrel, personified beautifully by Maev Beaty in a production filled with empathy and honesty by director Sarah Garton Stanley. Inspired by Victorian romance novels read as a child, Moscovitch tells of Sorrel’s evolution from girl to woman through her sexual relationships with men, while subverting the moralistic stereotypes those novels project by giving Sorrel an objective that falls outside of romantic, professional or child-bearing desires. Bunny was funny, sad, morally challenging and unafraid of its sexiness: a play with its roots in the 1800s unabashedly made in 2016.

As you can no doubt tell if you're looking here, this website is about 2 years out of date! Mea Culpa. But I will begin updating and posting again in the fall of 2016. In the meantime I am proud to have finished a run of the Canadian Premiere of Hannah Moscovitch's play Bunny at the Stratford Festival. This winter, I'll be revisiting Katherine Parr in Kate Hennig's The Last Wife at Soulpepper Theatre. Between here and there I'll be playing David Bowie for Acting Upstage's annual UnCovered event in Toronto. Thank you for visiting!

A Theatre Passe Muraille Production
Directed by Alan Dilworth
Starring Maev Beaty & Cyrus Lane
Stage Manager: Sarah Miller
Production Designer: Lorenzo Savoini

Condemned and exiled, Jesuit Pierre Teilhard de Chardin crossed continents searching for the missing link. His groundbreaking discoveries in human evolution transcended barriers between Faith and Science.

The De Chardin Project is about Jesuit priest, scientist and philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955). De Chardin, suffering a cerebral hemorrhage finds himself beyond the phenomenal world in an encounter with an enigmatic guide who leads him on the ultimate adventure: the excavation of himself.

The universe as we know it is a joint product of the observer and the observed.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Maev Beaty to play Kate in The Last Wife
 In her Stratford debut this season, Maev Beaty fast won a place as a leading player with her highly lauded portrayal of Goneril in King Lear and a striking performance as Hippolyta in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. She will return for her second season in 2015 to play Katherine Parr, the last wife of Henry VIII, in the world première of Kate Hennig’s startlingly contemporary new play. Sara Farb will play Mary, with Joseph Ziegler as Henry.
