What is your role in this production?
I play George in the Walterdale production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
Like George, co-incidently “History” is my “field”, having worked at Fort Edmonton Park for over thirty years; unlike George, my sentences are not convoluted (although, I have been known to give detailed answers to simple questions).
What is your background in theatre? I have been member of Walterdale since the mid 1970s. This extraordinary theatre community as supported me as an actor (Florizel in The Winter’s Tale, Eamon in Red Roses for Me), stage manager (The Skin of Our Teeth, The Tenth Negative Pig, Under Milkwood), and as a Board member.
What brought you out for this production? It was the script, in its detail, complexity, and hopefulness that first attracted me to Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?; it has been the creativity of the cast, director and crew which has made the rehearsal process so valuable! As usual this production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? reflects Walterdale’s special dedication to theatre in all its facets: a wonderful set in concept and evolution, clever and creative solutions to production challenges, a supportive atmosphere. A wonderful experience.
