After his capture in the African jungle, the ape Redpeter realizes his only escape route is to become a walking, talking, spitting, hard-drinking member of the “Peace Industry,” the entrepreneurial world of mercenary soldiers. In his keynote address to Graywater’s annual general meeting detailing the journey of his enforced evolution from Apehood to Humanhood, Mr. Redpeter embodies the irony that he is perhaps now more animalistic and less human than he ever was as a “lower” primate.

Hudson Village Theatre Announces NEW Artistic Director

Thu 21 Aug, 2014 - Member News

Hudson Village Theatre (HVT) is proud to announce its new Artistic Director. Matthew Tiffin, known to the Montreal theatre community as well as local audiences and media as one half of the ground-breaking, critically acclaimed Gravy Bath Productions, takes the reins in Hudson as of September 2, 2014.

Kalina Skulska, HVT's Executive Director was quoted to say, “In Matt, we have the total package: he’s plugged into new works and artists with a solid grasp of the established theatre canon. He’s well connected with local, national and international theatre communities and has successfully run an organization similar to ours in size and locality.”

Tiffin is equally enthusiastic. “I’ve always enjoyed coming to Hudson as a visitor and audience member; the people are amazing and the community is vibrant, warm and welcoming. I’ve seen a lot of theatres throughout Canada and this one- an old train station converted with such care into this charming little theatre- is very special and something to be cherished. I see tremendous possibility here to create unique, artistically vibrant and colourful seasons. I want nothing less than to blow the roof off the place night after night and have people look to our region and say, ‘That’s where the greatest work is being done.’”

About returning to the Montreal area, Tiffin said, “I am thrilled to be reconnecting with Montreal – the artists, audiences, colleagues and friends. I spent the richest, most productive and exciting years of my life here and have missed it deeply.”
