Stratford, 2010 - 'Peter Pan': 'Director Tim Carroll fuses an excellent cast and a superb design team into a presentation certain to delight... In the title role, Michael Therriault returns to the Festival... His is a Peter capable of delighting patrons and breaking their hearts, constantly juggling boyish bravado and vulnerability.' (London Free Press.) Tom McCamus plays Captain Hook. Great production - as was the Shaw version, in 2001!

King John - Not sure if this is comedy or tragedy.

'Coriolanus', 2006: (also seen 1997, with Tom McCamus as Coriolanus) 'Lauded by T.S.Eliot as WS's greatest achievement, 'Coriolanus' is at once personal & political... perhaps inevitable for a play written in 1608, a year of plague, famine, political riots & the death of Shakespeare's mother.' (A. Cimolini, director). With Colm Feore as 'Coriolanus' & other outstanding actors - an excellent & memorable production.

Stratford Festival’s King John: review

Tim Carroll’s production of King John has a truly electric first half — only to dim to candlelight in the second.

George Bernard Shaw's 'Androcles and the Lion' - seen at the Shaw Festival, 1984, with Tom McCamus as Androcles & Goldie Semple as Lavinia! 'Androcles and the Lion' is a 1912 play by George Bernard Shaw. ...GBS' retelling of the tale of Androcles, a slave who is saved by the requited mercy of a lion. In the play, Shaw portrays Androcles as one of many Christians led to the Colosseum for torture... the play exemplifies cultural clash between Jesus' teachings & traditional Roman values.'…
