An Interesting Interview

Had an interesting hour or so with Canadian actor Christopher Hunt last Friday.  He was in Steinbach to do interviews and collect background information for a play he is writing based on Miriam Toews’ book Swing Low about her father’s struggle with depression and eventual death. My friend Rudy linked me up with Chris and we met at a Steinbach restaurant to talk about what I remembered about Melvin Toews who was my teacher, colleague, my husband’s colleague and my son’s teacher.  Chris said Miriam Toews has given the project her blessing and he had already interviewed her.  

I hadn’t heard of Chris before but after our talk I did a little online research and discovered what an accomplished actor Chris is with a nearly three decades long career in Canadian theater. He has been in so many different plays in places across Canada and has won any number of acting awards.  It will be interesting to see what kind of play he will write. I will certainly want to see it when and if it hits the stage.
