Canadian Premiere of An Octoroon

The standouts are Lisa Berry and Kiera Sangster, playing a hilarious and touching double-act of "house slaves" Dido and Minnie, moved from the sidelines of the action to its centre here.

Canadian Premiere of An Octoroon

One of Jacobs-Jenkins’s most imaginative gestures is to flesh out the inner lives and relationships of the slave characters, and the exchanges between Lisa Berry’s Dido and Kiera Sangster’s Minnie are the production’s consistent pleasure.

Canadian Premiere of Father Comes Home From The Wars

The powerful Berry and Walter Borden have the most convincingly “Greek” presences – channelling the words as if they are a conduit between the past and present, or the Earth and the heavens.

Canadian Premiere of Father Comes Home From The Wars

Lisa Berry gives a magnificent performance as Penny. She makes us feel the complexity of Penny’s emotions in Part I, wanting Hero to stay for her own personal reasons, but simultaneously wanting whatever is best for him even if it means leaving her. In Part III, Berry rises to even greater heights as Penny forces herself to stay true to her promise to Hero despite overwhelming pressure to leave. I don’t want to give away the ending, but Penny undergoes the most massive emotional changes of any character in drama after Hero’s arrival and after he tells his news. The vehemence with which Berry depicts this 180º change in Penny is so strong and so true to life it knocks the breath out of you.

He finally enjoys some good luck, winning a joust in the joyful, enlightened court of King Simonides of Pentapolis (Kevin Gudahl in most playful form), and falling madly in love with the king’s daughter, Thaisa (the enigmatic and beautiful Lisa Berry)

Lisa Berry’s Thaisa is eloquent and grand, as befitting a queen. Her reunion with Pericles is tearful and stunning.
