Fiddelity Screening to be held in Cobourg

A screening of the film "Fiddelity" is to take place at the Loft Cinema in Cobourg, Ontario on Tuesday, December 15, at 2:00 p.m. The three actors, now living in Nova Scotia, coincidently all have a long and strong connexion with this lovely town on Lake Ontario.

Seating in this small theatre is restricted to 18 people by reason of Covid-19. The show, which was by open invitation, has quickly sold out and there is a waiting list pending any cancellations.  Admission is by Goodwill offering to the local Food Bank.

I have performed two shows in this lovely 50-seat theatre: Alan Bennett's "Bed Among the Lentils",. and Micheal macLiammoire's "The Importance of Being Oscar". 
Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend this event.

The script has received a favourable review from a literary critic; but another review found that although it was a "great story" it would not be a good play. Personally I believe that a monologue is a form of storytelling. A great story should be enough; but it has to be told well. This particular review was not based on a review of the script; but of an early and hastily put together video rehearsal of the play. Perhaps it was the performance they found lacking. Anyway, the review did encourage me to take a fresh look at the script and do some rewriting while away for the winter. The  early video rehearsal of scene 1 of this 11 scene monologue can be viewed on YouTube at  Fiddelity Sc. 1 . The play has yet
