Hamburger at the ACTOne Festival

Earlier this month Ciarán's play Hamburger premiered at the ACTOne Festival at the Registry Theatre in Kitchener. It was wonderful to be back in the fabric of our amazing and fast-growing community here in downtown Kitchener, sharing this amazing festival with the likes of Gary Kirkham and Sunil Kuruvilla. Ciarán came into the production with the nervousness of seeing his child walk for the first time then came out completely enamoured by John Krukowski and Darla Forward who performed a smart and sharp production. Hamburger was directed by Craig Pearson and staged managed by David Briski. John, playing Arie, is on his way out of the University of Waterloo's Drama program and Mr. Briski, stage managing, is about to begin his BA in technical theatre. With this production bolstering the play, we look forward to updating the script with a little help from the Ontario Arts Council (generously recommended by Pat the Dog Theatre Creation) and then presenting it again ourselves shortly down the road. Big thanks to Sam Varteniuk at the Registry Theatre for spearheading this amazing festival year after year. We can't wait for the next!
