ICFF presents Letter One, directed by Tony Nardi, a monologue articulating an actor/writer’s struggle with cultural stereotypes in Canadian theatre/film/tv. Letter One is part of the triptych Two Letters…And Counting!, three letters/monologues, the first two based on two actual letters sent to “middle-men” of the Canadian cultural scene (a film/television producer and two theatre critics). The third letter (And Counting!) is a postmortem of Two Letters, a journey into the present state of theatre, culture (and funding).
Screening will be followed by a panel discussion with actor Nick Mancuso, filmmaker Jerry Ciccoritti, screenwriter/playwright Frank Borg, writer/director Jim Purdy, and Tony Nardi, moderated by journalists Laura D’Aprile and Alberto Diamante.
Tony Nardi’s Letter One will be published by Guernica in 2013. Keep an eye out for it!
