Early Raves for LIVING CURIOSITIES: Ontario Arts Review and The Medium

Ontario Arts Review
“A provocative theatrical subject. Theatre Erindale, its director [Sten Eirik] and cast ace such a demanding challenge…. Interestingly, even though the audience is witness to the entire cast getting into costume at opening curtain; the representations soon become the reality…. All the depictions are immaculately executed … The set designed by Patrick Young is … artistic creativity as its experienced best. Joanne Massingham’s costumes are … major contributors to the overall impression of the play. The lighting and sound demands (created by James Smagata & Keith Whiting) … are faultless…. This play has already been included in our O.A.R. TOP TEN candidates list…don’t miss it.”

The Medium
“Everyone – actors, backstage crew, director, lighting designer – all have to give everything to the world of the play, and it was clear from the performance that everyone did…. The writing of Living Curiosities is filmic in style, presenting a series of short scenes … It was in these dark places between the scenes that I really saw director Sten Eirik and assistant director Paige Falardeau work their magic…. I don’t know that I have ever seen a group of actors so deeply immersed in their characters.”
