THE SWEET SMELL OF CHARLES TEMPLETON

“I’ve never had to push or knock at any doors. They’ve been opened for me and I’ve been kicked through them. But I’m not in the least surprised when I succeed”

NATHAN COHEN

For nearly a decade now a literary Jack the Ripper, complete with stiletto wit and malacca cane, has been stalking through the oasis-scattered wasteland of Canadian theatre slicing up tripe whenever tripe is served. Nathan Cohen is considered by many, including himself, to be the best drama critic in the country.
