ANNA CHATTERTONThe multitalented Chatterton indulged both her serious and comic sides in writing and performing this year, beginning with Within The Glass, a look at two couples dealing with a mix-up at a fertility clinic. Later she collaborated with Evalyn Parry and Karin Randoja on Gertrude And Alice, a funny and moving look at the famous lesbian couple, and wrote the eerie libretto for the opera Rocking Horse Winner. She finished the year as playwright and actor in Quiver, a multi-voiced solo show about a teen’s sense of rejection by her family. The thoughtful artistic director of Why Not Theatre seemed to be everywhere this year. He celebrated Diwali by reviving A Brimful Of Asha and co-presenting Piya Behrupiya, a Hindi version of Twelfth Night by India’s Company Theatre, and followed Asha’s parent-child theme with Like Mother, Like Daughter. Jain was also in demand elsewhere, directing The 39 Steps and the fascinating The Adventures Of The Black Girl In Her Search For God. But nothing topped Jain’s production of Salt-Water Moon, which turned the naturalistic play on its head and made it a timeless, universal love story. Anna Chatterton Oliver Dennis is a great comic actor, but he shone in two serious roles this year. Advertisement Advertisement 3. OLIVER DENNISA Soulpepper stalwart, Dennis is equally reliable in comedy and drama. This year he was part of five productions for his home company, beginning with a sympathetic paternal figure in Blood Wedding and ending with a hilarious turn as a soused actor in Noises Off and a hard-working guardian angel in It’s A Wonderful Life. But it was his pair of serious roles that stood out: first in Incident At Vichy, as a Nazi military man forced into a role he doesn’t relish, and, most extraordinary, as a Southern plantation owner, in Father Comes Home From The Wars (Parts I, II and III), who seems concerned for the loyal Black slave who willingly follows him into battle… until an offhand comment shows the man to be the scariest of racists. This year’s top theatre artists include an in-demand director as well as actors and playwrights who communicate the full range of emotions, often stepping out of their comfort zones to wow us with their talent. Artistic and cultural diversity are equally important in this year’s list, whose members created productions that provided audiences with luminous theatrical memories.This year’s top theatre artists include an in-demand director as well as actors and playwrights who communicate the full range of emotions, often stepping out of their comfort zones to wow us with their talent.
