Written by Arthur

Toronto, August 23, 2005…Glastonbury West
is proud to present Arthur Schnitzler's brilliant play cycle, THE AFFAIRS OF ANATOL,
starring John O'Callaghan as Anatol, previewing from September 15, opening Saturday, September 17 and running through to October 9 at Artword Theatre, 75 Portland St.
coveted role of Anatol will be played by John O'Callaghan(Rum and Vodka
originally produced at The Fringe then sold out off-Broadway in New York City, DDT’s By the Bog of Cats,
Crow’s Godzilla, Anna Livia’s Bloomsday from 1997-2003, films We were the Mulvaney’s,
Gangs of New York), the charismatic actor who returns to the Toronto stage direct from a very successful summer run
in Howie The Rookie at the Irish Arts Center in New York City to star
as Schnitzler’s famously neurotic pilgrim of love.
in exuberant youth, Anatol was the Austrian doctor-playwright’s
first hit, remaining popular when Reigen caused a storm with censors and was withdrawn from performance by its indignant
author. (Adaptations of Reigen include Max Ophuls’ La Ronde and David Hare’s The Blue Room.)
John Barrymore brought Anatol to Broadway in 1912 and again in 1932,
and Wallace Reid played him in the silent film.
“Schnitzler’s life was as X-rated as his work; his dramas are about the flesh and describe our carnal urges
clinically, without squeamishness. Here, we watch the eponymous Viennese playboy seduce seven women. Each time, Anatol seeks
escape from the barren elegance of his bachelor existence. The rake’s best friend looks on, alternately appalled and
amused. Stanley Kubrick turned another Schnitzler work into Eyes Wide Shut, and the same dreamy, sinister sexiness
pervades this drama.” —Alec Scott,
Toronto Life, September
Young Dr. Schnitzler (1862-193l)
became one of Austria’s leading playwrights, anticipating the discoveries of
his fellow Viennese Dr. Sigmund Freud. One of the few writers who superbly handles inner conflict and ambiguity, in the very
first scene, Schnitzler deliciously sets up what became his underlying theme: the struggle for love and power between
the sexes. Originally published in 1892,THE AFFAIRS OF ANATOL continues to be as relevant as ever due to Schnitzler’s wit, insight, and grasp of
the relationship between the sexes in a manner daring for his time.
AFFAIRS OF ANATOL features seven strong, sexy women as Anatol’s muses –
Marie Beath Badian (Theatre Direct Associate Artist, Blyth Festival Young
Company Director), Kim Kuhteubl (Summerworks’ Suffragette Koans),Lindsay McMahon (Bella Donna for The Fringe), Stacie Mistysyn (Best Actress Gemini for De Grassi High, Caitlin in De Grassi: The Next Generation),Tara Samuel (Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye, The Edible Woman for Canadian Stage),
DarleneSpencer (Run for
The Fringe) and Kathryn Winslow (This is Wonderland, films Sabah,
Atom Egoyan’s Where the Truth Lies). James Murray (Summerworks’
Checkpoint, film Surfacing) is Anatol’s enigmatic friend MAX.
Dora-nominated director Sue Miner is co-artistic director of Pea Green Theatre Group with Mark Brownell.
She directed Bella Donna (NNNN –
