Paul Bilodeau as Harry
Paul thanks Village Players for his Covid-postponed stage debut. Paul studies acting, directing and playwriting at Act 2 Studio, where his latest play, Survivors – staged at the Aki Studio Theatre in March – won the 2022 Stella Award for best new one-act play. Paul has also appeared in productions of the Toronto Workers’ History Theatre, and in Haven Theatre’s on-line shows.
Julian Lee as Drew
Julian is a Toronto actor and musician who fell in love with acting when his high school English teacher lent him a volume of Pinter plays. Julian went on to study Radio and Television Arts at Ryerson University, relishing each chance he got to perform. After a long hiatus, Julian is overjoyed to feel the exhilaration of “treading the boards” again.
Lynn Oldershaw as Gin
In her youth, Lynn trained and performed in Toronto and NYC. Since her return to acting in 2017, Lynn has acted in plays with such groups as Alumnae Theatre, The Curtain Club, East Side Players, and Theatre Aurora. This is Lynn’s first appearance on the Village Playhouse stage, and she is thrilled to be working with such talented folks on this brilliant play.
Note: all three actors also play other characters in flashbacks during the play.
