“Melody A. Johnson proves once again, she is the kook supreme of the Canadian stage…I truly would pay money to see Johnson read the phone book…” – Richard Ouzonian, The Toronto Star
Award-winning, celebrated actor and writer Melody A. Johnson returns with the same Miss Caledonia team for her new solo show Person Of Interest, a comedy drama told as a 70-minute story.
Typecast as a “housebound loser”, Person of Interest is the mostly true story of an actor driven to the brink by neighbours from Hell. Audiences who have enjoyed catching the wave of stand alone storytelling (NPR’s The Moth, CBC’s Vinyl Cafe), will crave the yarn spinning, dark tale that is Person of Interest. Told simply and skillfully, it is a comic journey of a good neighbour gone bad will strike a chord with anyone who has ever lived, loved, and battled with the people next door.
Johnson has performed across stages in both Canada and the United Kingdom with her acclaimed Miss Caledonia, (2014 TOURING ARTIST OF THE YEAR, 2013 Dora award nomination for both Best New Play, and Outstanding Actress).
Critics rave over Person of Interest…
“Endearingly Puck-like, full of energy, mischief and irreverence for the mundane, but genuinely wanting to get along, she weaves this sometimes shocking tale of neighbourhood warfare with candour and an edgy sense of fun. “
“…expertly written and performed by the undeniable Melody Johnson…extremely clever with some unique jokes and anecdotes…”” – Cathy McKim, Life With More Cowvbell
“The performance is seamless. Johnson powers through with not an ounce of apprehension. It’s very cool to watch…a fun, quirky and clever night of theatre…” – Jennifer, Enchin, Mooney on Theatre
“…Johnson is a great eccentric comedienne… “
-Robert Cushman, The National Post
