BRIEF INTERVIEWS WITH HIDEOUS MEN
NSTC SHOWS / ROLES
— ‘Forensics Expert -> Tapemouth Man’
— Interviews #42, #51 & #59
John Ball made his debut appearance with Nasty Shadows back in 2009 as ‘Forensics Expert -> Tapemouth Man’ in the Company’s production of Orestes 2.1 — an evocative performance still casting a Shadow. A regular performer with Bard in the Barracks, John has played ‘King Lear’, ‘Boyet’, ‘Gonzalo’, and ‘Polonius’ in recent years. He has also composed music for the songs in several Bard shows, including The Tempest (2013); acted in and written various short plays for NotaBle Acts; and directed Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale (2013) and Peter Shaffer’s Black Comedy (2012), among other productions, for Theatre UNB. John tackled the challenge of ‘Prospero’ in last year’s remount of a Nasty Co-founder’s original work, Rougher Magic: A cubist Shakespeare. The upcoming staged adaptation of Brief Interviews With Hideous Men finds John in a HIDEOUS portrayal of 3 men openly expressing their most personal thoughts and perceptions.
