What's next for Christopher Plummer?
Plummer, a Weston resident who became , recently premiered his one-man autobiographical play—called "A Word or Two"—at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival earlier this month in Canada, The Los Angeles Times reports. The play is the result of about 15 years of work.
Writes Christopher Smith for The Times:
"A Word or Two" is a bravura one-man showcase for a few of his favorite things — principally, Plummer's love of language and writing. Onstage at the bucolic Canadian theater complex that originally launched him to stardom, he spent 90 nonstop minutes — lights fade to black for a seeming intermission but immediately snap back on, Plummer wryly saying "welcome back!" — weaving a tale of personal experience and reflection stitched together with recited passages from Lewis Carroll, W.H. Auden, Dylan Thomas and other literary luminaries.
Moving forward, Plummer is considering a limited run for the play in New York, should he be able to find the right theater.
