Lost - A Memoir

When: Oct. 18-Nov. 6 2011

One woman commanding Neptune’s main stage for a full 90 minutes is a tall order, but Calgary actor Jan Alexandra Smith delivers beautifully. She gives a powerful and winning performance as Cathy Ostlere (author of the memoir and co-author of the play) a woman struggling with the loss at sea of her younger brother. The story unfolds as a series of vignettes that recreate Ostlere’s attempts to solve the mystery of her brother’s disappearance and to make sense of her own choices in life. The set, with its projections that capture the sights and sounds of the sea in an almost abstract way, is a brilliantly conceived back drop to the story. Smith is a captivating actress at the helm of a captivating, thought-provoking and touching story. –Kate Watson
