Unity (1918) – Phoenix Theatre 2014
4 stars (out of five) The University of Victoria’s student cast does a superior job with a challenging script…Kerr has directed his show with panache and grace…Amy Culliford played Beatrice, one of the sisters, with great heart and empathy…On Thursday night, at least one audience member dabbed her eyes and half the audience gave Unity (1918) a standing ovation…
Protagonists Beatrice (Amy Culliford) and Sissy Wild (Haley Garnett) play their big and l’il sis archetypes with tremendous humanity, noble despite adversity yet played with just the right amount of pluck to keep them interesting.
The Skin of Our Teeth – Phoenix Theatre 2013
4 1/2 stars (out of five) Directed with clarity by Linda Hardy, this theatrical extravaganza boasts lovely production values, strong student acting and — happily — strikes just the right tone.
Amongst the massive cast – many actors play more than one role – there are no notable weak links. Amy Culliford wrings much fun out of her fortune teller character and even those with small parts make the most out of their time on stage.
