BAKER’S DOZEN – a televised play

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.
