MORE ABOUT "MR. WONDERFUL AND I"


THE PROJECT

MAN and his dog Sheldon have recently moved but never quite got the chance to say goodbye. As MAN settles into his own apartment and starts unpacking, he can’t help but look back on his life. He decides to write a couple of letters to say goodbye or to make amends with the different people who have made an impact in his life.

But the process is anything but smooth because, after twenty-eight years, it's difficult to understand what really happened and to decide who to contact. MAN is relying on a new acquaintance to assist him with the process and to help him understand the truth.

Mr. Wonderful and I is a journey about looking back and moving on, an exploration into discovering one’s own mental health, how to thrive beyond a diagnosis, and the power of unconditional love.



HISTORY

"Mr. Wonderful and I" was originally selected by a jury to premier at the Toronto Gay Theatre Festival in the Fall of 2020. In January of 2021, playwright Isaac Mulè was awarded an OAC Recommender Grant from Roseneath Theatre and a grant from the Waterloo Arts Fund to develop this project. Early dramaturgical work was supported by Kira Meyers-Guiden.
