About The Performance
When Bill and Sandy’s marriage split up, so did their curling team – splintering off into a men’s team and a women’s team who begrudgingly share the ice at the Stayner Curling Club. Now, a medical emergency has left the men’s team short a player the day of the big Regional Bonspiel. If they have any hope of beating neighbouring Meaford and taking the trophy for Stayner, they’ll have to put aside their personal differences and unite as one team.
Robert Moloney – Director
Known for his versatility, Robert maintains a busy career in film, television, and theatre. His work has taken him across Canada, to London’s West End, (Out There on Fried Meat Ridge Road), as far away as Australia, (The Adventures of K-9). He has been nominated for a Leo award and three Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards – winning for his portrayal of Steve in Clybourne Park, (Arts Club Theatre). Other recent theatre credits include: Jitters, Disgraced, The Odd Couple, The Glass Menagerie, All My Sons – Arts Club Theatre; Uncle Vanya – Blackbird Theatre; Except in the Unlikely Event of War – PI; Bingo, Liar – Prairie Theatre Exchange.

Like Jim Carrey or Seth Rogan, Duncan started his acting career through stand-up comedy…and that’s where the comparison ends. Duncan has numerous TV and film credits, if his IMDB page is to be believed, and has died very well in quite a few…except Hallmark Christmas movies, thankfully!
He also has an established voice career performing in hundreds of radio commercials and other voice overs – his face apparently works much better hidden behind a microphone. You can also find him doing solo music shows and as lead singer of a local band performing all over the lower Mainland.
JULIE LYNN MORTENSEN – Sandy
Julie Lynn is also a highly rated meditation teacher on Insight Timer, mother to a little girl, wife to a wonderful man (fellow actor/director Robert Moloney) and otherwise really loves to ski. She has never curled, but after this heartwarming play, her sights are set on it.
BRIAN JOHNSTON – Bill
