Some words from the director of The Servant of Two Masters:

Thank you Capital Critics Circle for this award. And to all others nominated; We are here to celebrate our united cause that theatre matters and is essential to our community and beyond!

I owe an enormous debt of gratitude, nay love, to one and all at Odyssey; to Laurie Steven for having unending faith, support and guidance. To James Richardson for dedication, long hours and positive vibes throughout the process. And to Aurora and Megan for amazing work in the office. To Vanessa Imeson for her brilliant costumes, Jerrard Smith for an exquisite set and mask design. To Steven Lafond for his smart, riotous and groundbreaking sound design. To Ron Ward, endlessly inventive and adventurous as usual as our lighting designer and Alex Maisonneuve for her guiding light as Stage manager. To Graham Price for tireless enthusiasm and to all our friends who hammered a nail, painted a flat, filled a bucket and helped turn the bare stage in Strathcona Park into Venice of the 1950’s.

To our acting company; Sarah Finn, Jesse Buck, Dana Fradkin, Maryse Fernandes, Jay Maniloff, Sean Sullivan, Zach Council, Lynne Griffin, Josh Wiles and Adam Sanders. You are all rock stars. Thank you for your artistry.

In closing, thanks to our spectacular youth apprentices who represent the future of our theatrical legacy in Ottawa and beyond. I was honoured to spend the summer with you.

To all of you in the room tonight, please keep creating, telling stories and loving theatre.

Your humble servant,
Andy Massingham
