Death and “My Narrators” Star at Blackhorse

June 14, 2019   ·   0 Comments

From the afterlife and imagination, to what to heed and what to ignore while we are alive, realistically they all matter in “My Narrator” and “The Death of Me”, now playing at Blackhorse Village Players.

Director Joey Ferguson gives us tales of life and death gone awry, with one chance of being righted.

John Adderly (Andrew Pawarroo) is in a critical life or death situation; according to the Angel of Death (Sandra Salvatore), either he dropped dead yesterday or is allowed a 24-hour stay to do the right thing.

Pawarroo’s anxiety, confusion, frustration, and unexpected decision bring his character to life leaving us with the feeling “déjà vu (all over again).”

Salvatore is a shepherd of the dying rather than a guardian, ushering us with candor, subtleties, and finally pulling the carpet out from under our expectations most unexpectedly.

Going along for the ride is John Sellens, a doctor with more humor than expertise, a one-track mind headed for vacations and retirement. Little does he know! Sellens leaves us laughing uproariously at his portrayal of a most colourful character. Then there’s Cassie, Adderly’s old girlfriend who done him wrong.  Holl is outrageously enjoyable. Her character magnifies every part of life and centers it on herself, making her almost endearing.

“The Narrators” features an equally talented cast: Lacy (Jo-Anne Pulfer) and Miles (Mark Henry Nielsen) are a couple that possess two narrators (Ivor and Ginny Cathcart), imaginary friends with a conscience.

Pulfer shines both as star and producer of the evening.

The multitalented actress portrays a second rate painter who graduates to first class; close on her heels we find Ginny Cathcart, a charming and witty mentor to Miles, whose sweetly honest and bumbling demeanor matches the prompting of Ivor, cool, classy and more at ease.

The balance takes talent, and it’s all well played.

Director Joey Ferguson colors Norm Foster’s classic comedy spirit with an extremely talented cast and crew.

The setting carries a sense of mystery and unexpected happenings, easily transformed for each scene.   Whether as anteroom or art gallery, it speaks, as does the play, to success.
