Christopher Hunt returns to perform the first act of ‘When That I Was’

Act 1 of John Mortimer and Edward Atienza’s “When That I Was”, will be performed by esteemed Calgary actor Christopher Hunt. Christoper is the recipient of six Betty Mitchell Awards for Acting (including for this play), and the 2018 Harry & Martha Cohen Award for his sustained and significant contribution to theatre in Calgary.

Chris plays Jack Rice, an actor in Shakespeare’s company who performed women’s roles as a young boy. In the play, Jack considers his fate after the Puritans have closed the theatres and his troupe has dispersed, sharing memories of better times, and revisiting over twenty different roles, from Queen Elizabeth I to Shakespeare.

Attendance will be limited to 25 people to ensure social distancing. Sunscreen, hats, and masks are encouraged.
