KISS THE MOON, KISS THE SUN
It had been a long time since I was on the stage. A number of years travelling and working primarily in Film and Television prevented it from happening.
Well in the summer of 2014 I had the good fortune of returning to the stage at the beautiful Victoria Playhouse on Prince Edward Island. And it just felt so right.
I was cast as ROBERT in KISS THE MOON, KISS THE SUN, written by Norm Foster. The play was directed by Ted Price, who was by far one of the most engaging, direct, and visionary directors I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
Cast along side of me was Cathy Grant, Rebecca Griffin, Mark Fraser, and Mark Stevenson. A spectacular ensemble, along side a super fun crew. I'm extremely grateful for this unforgettable experience!
"Actor Jeremie Saunders has obviously studied his character and we recognize the truth in his delivery. His smile, the tilt of his head, the way he holds his hands, the way he reacts to being hugged, his walk: we all recognize a person who has suffered brain damage. And we immediately love him." - JoDee Samuelson, The Buzz PEI
"Jeremie Saunders plays Robert, the central character who suffered a brain injury as a child and is now, as an adult, somewhat slow and naive. In this role, Saunders is outstanding. He’s affable and funny and pensive and observant [...] It’s a seriously beautiful performance." - Lennie MacPherson, The Guardian
