If you’re an Alumnae Theatre regular, you may remember actor Jessica Moss from such productions as She Stoops To Conquer (Main Stage, 2005), The Queens (Main Stage, 2010) and between the tree and the sweetest pea (in which she played a bride hilariously battling the ghost of her husband’s former girlfriend) at the 2007 New Ideas Festival.
You probably don’t know her as a playwright, but with her new self-written solo show Modern Love, that’s about to change.
Check out this 4-N review in NOW magazine: http://www.nowtoronto.com/daily/stage/story.cfm?content=184648, and a wonderfully articulate interview she gave to Theatromania: http://www.theatromania.ca/2012/01/2012-next-stage-theatre-festival-qa-jessica-moss.html
and another great review on Stage Door: http://www.stage-door.com/Theatre/Current_Reviews/Entries/2012/1/9_Loving_the_Stranger_or_how_to_recognize_an_invert_2.html
