Stratford Festival veteran Rod Beattie returns to his (stage) roots with Wingfield Lost & Found. He answers our questions.
What’s new with everybody’s favourite Bay Street trader turned farmer?
Well, we last saw Walt having started a family and gotten into climate concerns. Walt’s well fails, and this occasions trouble and a lot of hilarity.
In addition to Walt, you play, well, all the characters. Does that type of acting have any side effects?
You mean, how do I stay out of the clinic? [Laughter] Well, it isn’t much different from the kind of acting you do normally, but you switch moment to moment instead of play to play.
Panasonic Theatre, Jan. 12 to 30.
