Meghan Greeley continues to turn heads in the theatre world


Meghan Greeley is pretty excited about the warm reception her play “Kingdom” received in Toronto.

“Kingdom,” directed by Mallory Fisher and starring Greeley, fellow Newfoundlander David Ferry and Annelise Hawrylak, was staged Sept. 7-14 at the Tarragon Theatre Workspace — a new smaller venue built inside the main venue of The Tarragon Theatre — considered the grooming ground for contemporary playwriting in the country.

Greeley embraced the venue because it proved a smaller setting that worked well for a play about a girl raised in a room.

“So it has that sort of intimate, claustrophobic feel that we were hoping to find,” Greeley said.

According to Greeley, theatre fans appeared to enjoy the show and Mooney On Theatre just happened to give an amazing review, so that made all the effort worthwhile. The talent of co-star Ferry didn’t go unnoticed either.

“The reviews said that his performance was perhaps the best they’ve seen ever on stage so that was a really wonderful review to get,” she said.

Greeley joined forces with Fisher as co-artistic directors to create a small theatre company called Contra and they are already trying to figure out what’s next and they are looking for another female writer to work with in the near future.

 “We’re a feminist company so it’s really important to us that we find a young woman, or somebody who identifies with a woman, to work with,” she said.
