Tony Nardi to be Interviewed on NEWSTALK 1010 Saturday’s with Ted Woloshyn

We are happy to announce that Guernica author Tony Nardi is going to be interviewed this Saturday, April 13th at 11:30am on NEWSTALK 1010’s Saturday’s with Ted Woloshyn. Be sure to tune in and listen to Tony talk about his new book, TWO LETTERS… And Counting! (Guernica 2013)! You can hear the interview stream live here, or tune in on the radio.

TWO LETTERS… And Counting! is based on two actual letters sent to “middle-men” of the Canadian cultural scene: a film/television producer and two theatre critics. Letter One articulates an actor/writer’s struggle with cultural stereotypes in Canadian theatre/film/TV. Letter Two challenges misconceptions about commedia dell’arte by present-day theatre critics and directors. Michael Posner from The Globe and Mail called it “... a sweeping cultural critique, a cri de coeur that is perhaps the first extended work of its kind to attempt to decolonize the Canadian imagination … surely one of the strangest and most provocative pieces of theatre ever staged in this country … Nardi doesn’t just bite the hand that feeds him; he chews it up and then spits it out”.

Tony Nardi is a multi-award winner for his work in film, television and theatre and is an actor, playwright, director and producer. A four-time Genie Awards Nominee, he has won twice for Best Actor for his roles in La Sarrasine (1992) and My Father’s Angel (2001), for which he had also received a Best Actor award at the Sonoma Wine and Country Film Festival in 2000. In television, he received a Gemini Award nomination in 2006 for his role in Il Duce Canadese and a Best Actor Award at the Geneva International Film Festival, Tous Écrans/All Screens, in 1999, for his role in Foolish Heart. He has performed in more than sixty (60) plays ranging from classics to more experimental and collective-driven works. In 2007 he received a Best Actor Thespis Award for Two Letters. In 2007 Two Letters was nominated for a Dora Award (Outstanding New Play).
