Lead role in an Oliver Goldsmith production of She Stoops to Conquer

She Stoops to Conquer … moved along quite well thanks to the comic brilliance of the two lead actors played by Andrea Fajrajsl and Christopher Deeble. The scenes between Fajrajsl and her co-star Christopher Deeble were certainly the production’s most memorable ones. Both actors possess outstanding comic abilities and have a chemistry on stage that makes them a delight to watch. Deeble is a natural scene stealer because of his excellent ability to carry through, from the beginning to the end, the voice intonations and personality quirks of his character. From the first appearance in the bar scene when he first meets Kate, Marlow is a constant source of humour.” Leslie Jones, Kanata Standard (October 31, 1985)
