Generations have fallen in love with Aurelia, the heroine, mostly because her “madness” is really optimism that’s out of place in a cynical time. Furthermore she inspires those around her to take action against the corrupt men who want to tear up Parisian streets to drill for oil. A wonderful mix of story, setting and eccentric characters promises a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Madwoman is directed by Harvey Levkoe with set design by Wayne Cardinalli, lighting design by Mary Jane Boon, costume design by Alex Amini, and sound design by John McQueen. Stage Managed by Karen Farnocchi, this production features the talents of Janice Hansen as the Madwoman, Erin Jones, harriet Karch, Lisa Kovack, Chris Irving, Stephen Flett, Thomas O’Neill, Alex Bortoluzzi, Mandi Sunshine, Kearsten Johansson, Jarrod Vanvolkenburg, Tyler Tanner, Mary Dwyer, Paul Micucci, Kurt Thomsen, Maureen Lukie, Frankie Nusink, Chris Coculuzzi, Peter Bloch-Hansen, Howard Davis, Janice Peters, and Kristin Chan.
In 1978, Amicus (Latin for friends) was founded by a group of people looking to create good theatre in a friendly and democratic spirit. Amicus is a not-for-profit, award-winning organization whose volunteers donate thousands of hours per production without any payment, only enjoyment. For over 35 years, Amicus has presented dramatic, comic, classic and Canadian works. Our best friends are the audiences for whom we perform.
