John D Huston
This is John's 16th year in the professional theatre. He has appeared onstage in England, the United States and throughout Canada. A member of the Metis Nation of Saskatchewan, John has made an interesting living "culturally misappropriating the lives of dead white males", playing Tommy Douglas, William Shakespeare, and Charles Dickens. He has just returned from the U.K. where he performed Prospero in "Tempus Fugit", a modern sequel to "The Tempest".
John's one man show, "Charles Dickens Presents, A Christmas Carol" regularly tours Canada, recently playing to full houses at Ottawa's National Arts Centre 4th Stage. His other solo shows run the gamut from English ghost stories, "Creeping Murmur; Poring Dark"; to Canadian tall tales, "The Flying Bull"; to the controversial "Shylock", by Canadian playwright Mark Leiren-Young.
