Richard Beaune

(director and co-author):
Richard has been an actor and director for over 20 years. His work has been seen across the country in various venues, including the Stratford and Shaw Festivals, The Citadel Theatre and The National Arts Centre. He directed the Canadian Comedy Award winning Trapped in Taffeta by Leslie Seiler, and spends a lot of time with Shakespeare, too. His work as an intern director at The Shaw Festival, and particularly as an assistant director to Neil Munro on Chaplin by Simon Bradbury was particularly influential and helped lead him to this project.
