Like Dear Abby, diner owner Angie dishes out food and advice to her patrons based on their needs and wants, not a menu — that is, until she meets a guest she can’t read.

Angie - Barb Clifford is an award-winning actress and has performed across the GTA and Durham in film, television, voice, and stage. Selected credits include Violet in August: Osage County (WCT), Rose in Les Belles Soeurs and Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest (OLT), Margaret in Northern Lights (Theatre on the Bay), Carla in Surrender, Dorothy (Alumnae Theatre), The Actress/Lizzie in Blood Relations (ESP), Janet in Waiting for the Parade (SP), Florence in The Odd Couple: Female Version, Adrienne in A Bench in the Sun, Theda in It Had To Be You, & Lexie in The Sweet Delilah Swim Club (HG).

Donna - Carey Nicholson is a graduate of George Brown College and the School of the Toronto Dance Theatre (STDT) professional dance programs, and a past faculty member at STDT. She has been involved with community and professional theatre companies in Durham, York region and elsewhere in many capacities, primarily as board member, producer, director, choreographer, performer, instructor, set and costume designer. Her past, and ongoing, theatre studies include programs and courses with George Brown College, Toronto Dance Theatre, Tarragon Theatre, the Stratford Festival, Off The Wall Theatre Alliance, and as an auditing director with Obsidian Theatre in 2018.

Michael - Graeme Powell is an actor, playwright and video editor. He has performed in several Theatre on the Ridge productions since the company’s launch in 2014, including Vimy and The Play’s The Thing and is a regular member of our scenario training ensemble. Graeme has also created the script adaptations used in our Pine Grove Plots cemetery walks and has had several plays produced in Port Perry and elsewhere, including Renovations, All Together Now, and Palmer Park.

Andy - Conrad Boyce is a native Albertan, and lived many years in both B.C. and the Yukon before emigrating to Ontario in 1995. I became involved in the Uxbridge arts community almost immediately but was obliged to work elsewhere until I became the founding editor/publisher of the Cosmos in 2005. Among the other local writing projects I’m most proud of are Maud of Leaskdale, the one-woman play I created for the LMMSO in Leaskdale, and Jewel on the Hill, the book about the Thomas Foster Memorial I wrote in 2014.
