Toil and Trouble

Monday, March 1, 7pm
Reading: “Toil and Trouble”
By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Marlo K. Shaw 


In this darkly comic adaptation of Macbeth, brought into modern times, three underemployed friends are desperate to beat the recession any way they can–like combining forces to take over a small island in South America. But when a fortune cookie tells Matt that he will rule and Beth gets a little too handy with a dagger, plans go awry. 

Featuring Victoria Stark, Lynn Oldershaw, Hannah Scott, and Marlo K. Shaw, narrated by Krystyna Hunt.

Picasso at the Lapin Agile

Wow, that was fun! Hours later, I am still buzzing.

20-something years ago, when I saw Picasso at the Lapin Agile at CanStage, I would never have dreamed that I would have the pleasure of playing Albert Einstein, especially in a cast with such talented actors and director.

Wednesday

Back in rehearsal for Picasso at the Lapin Agile. Later tonight I get to travel to Minnesota for Writing Circle led by one of my favourite poets, Neil Hilborn. We write, and share and gush and laugh into the late hours of the night.

My card of the day says, “My life works beautifully.” I guffawed when I saw it, but as the day progresses it is feeling more like it fits.
