Writing/ Directing Reviews
"The Death of the Good"
“Blow This Popsicle Stand”
“A popsicle, Grape, has tumbled from the top of his his freezer-case home into the uncharted Arctic expanse of the freezer's bottom. It's a lonely existence, though Grape's philosophical turn of mind helps him muddle through, though the constant hum of the machine's compressed air hose has pushed him dangerously close to madness at times. Periodically, other stick-people of his kind find themselves in this deep-frozen landscape, such as the smug little multi-flavoured bruiser, Cyclone, and an attractive flirt of equally tantalizing taste, Bubble-Pop, though they will both be eventually rescued. Not Grape, though, as the poor fellow is, well, grape-flavoured. The young Canadian troupe Black Hand Theatre has created this sweet, amusing little live action cartoon as a two-hander for Jayson McDonald (Grape) and the versatile Tyler Parr (as the rest of the dessert tray). The humor is perfectly light, but there's a surprising depth to the piece, with an ending that blazes with hope and redemption. Smartly directed by playwright Stephie Theodora, and boasting two marvelous young actors, Blow This Popsicle Stand is the perfect summer treat. Try it.”
-Steffen Silvis, The Prague Post
At times a (very) tongue-in-cheek Waiting for Godot, at times teen romance, at times a psychological power struggle, Grape’s interactions are hilarious but always human. The brilliantly witty text by Stephie Theodora (who also directed) dances lightly between existential questioning and psychological games – with frequent outrageously funny reminders that we are, after all, talking about popsicles here....
“Artem Barry and Danielle Le Saux-Farmer play a brother and sister living in Skurahnovtaz who reveal through artfully scripted words and su- premely acted vignettes various tales from the village’s past and present. Trees have flesh and fingers, poppy seeds can stop a witch in her tracks, tables dance and (albeit obliquely) tell the future, tulips are black and babies are born with white eyes. While the spirituality continues unabated and the ‘old woman’ next door is viewed with suspicion, we learn of life in the course of the war, of nights of empty air raids, of dwindling sup- plies and of silkworms. People die, though not due to bullets and bombs, and, as Ildi becomes more and more aware of the mystic nature of life in the village, her long-suffering brother stares at the one endlessly repeated movie on Serb television until he is goaded into telling another story from the days when the great oak was just a sapling... The clash of mysticism and industrialization is beautifully personified by the authentic push and shove between the steady brother and flighty sister until the abrupt ending one Christmas Eve. Fantastic, in all definitions of the word.”

“Having been thoroughly delighted by the Black Hand production of Blow This Popsicle Stand at last year's Fringe, I approached this year's show with high expectations. Silkworm, a self-declared work-in-progress, is characterized by the same clarity and energy as their previous one. The director, Stephie Theodora, has an eye for detail and timing that is quite extraordinary. The two enthusiastic actors, Artem Barry and Danielle Le Saux-Farmer succeed in presenting a host of characters - sometimes eccentric and sometimes touchingly human. The art of storytelling is central to the success of the show. The material is rich and the company has the energy and the talent to exploit it. As it is a work-in-progress the sapling forms an inspiring and engaging piece. I get the feeling they will grow into a truly innovative and significant company.

"Artstetten is an engaging, thought-provoking, and rhythmic dance between the intricate and contentious forces of war and the solace and stability sought and found in love. Theodora's minimalist play inspires kaleidoscopic interpretation through its use of simple props, its militaristic and seductive choreography, and its artful interweaving of Romance and Tragedy."
