A One-Man Masterpiece

Eccentric character weaves tales of intrigue from Germany

"... the play surpassed all expectations – from the stellar performance of Rooney in 36 different roles, leaping back and forth in time, seamlessly changing character and accent in mid-sentence; to Alan Brodie's masterful lighting, which, on more than one occasion, made me want to reach for a camera to capture the image on stage; to the incredible direction that made sense out of confusion, made a two-hour monologue riveting and created the best final minutes of a play that I've seen on a Vancouver stage in recent years."

Cross-Dressing Drama a Classic Little Number
“The staging is as fine as the acting.  Alan Brodie’s lights reinforce differences between truth and illusion…”
