Baker’s Dozen is a solo comedy stage show I directed: one actor transformed one puppet into 12 members of a jury. We worked hard on finessing on the actor’s ability to switch instantly between 12 different comedic characters using changes of voice and physicality as a source of comedy. The transitions were fully visible, and care was taken to make them both lyrical and funny.
Critical praise for the play included:
“Director Nicole Stamp handles the scene transitions skilfully.” – NOW.
“Wonderful voice acting!” – Mooney on Theatre.
“A tour-de-force performance!” – Crew Magazine.
“Hilarious… the audience was thrilled!” – Xtra.
“Unexpectedly subversive… Best of the Fringe!” – Torontoist.
“Top Pick of the Fringe!” – CBC.
The play was then picked up and filmed for TV broadcast, by Bell Media.
The play also recieved two Broadway World Award nominations: “Best Breakout Performance” and “Best Fringe Play”.
Role: Theatre director, Voice director.
