What is your background in theatre? Although it’s my first time on the Walterdale stage, I have been involved in theatre since the tender age of seven. I have made a couple of appearances at NextFest and the Fringe, and, being bilingual, through l’UniThéâtre. I have about seven years of improv experience and definitely consider it to be my favourite form of theatre.
What brought you out for this show? I knew the story was interesting and filled to the brim with amusing characters, and I figured it would be a blast to be a part of. Boy, was I right!
Why do you think audiences shoudl come and see this show? Lady Windermere’s Fan is extremely cleverly written, with twists and turns in every scene. Each character brings a new dimension to the story and there is humour sprinkled throughout. It’s loads of fun to watch; trust me, I have seen it many times by now.
What has been the most fun so far working on the show? The little accidents that turn out to be hilarious. Everyone involved has a great sense of humour, I’m surprised we get anything done at all.
The most challenging thing? The posture! I’m a sloucher through and through.
What is your favorite Oscar Wilde quote? “London is too full of fogs—and serious people. Whether the fogs produce the serious people or whether the serious people produce the fogs, I don’t know.”
