written and performed by Keir Cutler

directed by Paul Van Dyck

"Magnificence" is Keir's tenth original monologue. This new work is based on Keir's relationship with his late mother, May Ebbitt Cutler, (1923-2011), former mayor of Westmount, Quebec, founder of Tundra Books and the author of the award-winning, highly-praised memoir set during her childhood at Mont Tremblant during the 1930s, "I Once Knew An Indian Woman." A book that had a great effect on Keir as a child. The New York Times reviewed her book in 1973 stating, "Simplicity isn't easy to find any more and neither is goodness. In this story they are stunningly exemplified . . . " The work is directed by the award-winning, Paul Van Dyck.

"Magnificence" opened at the Montreal Fringe Festival on May 29, 2019, and received a rave review ". . . a touching story of goodwill, generosity, and humanity that no audience member will forget!" Montreal Theatre Hub.

"Magnificence" was awarded "Best English Text" at the Montreal Fringe and went on to rave reviews at the 2019 Ottawa and Winnipeg Fringe Festivals.
