Simon Webb, Leading Actor
Simon is one of Canada’s finest actors and having him on board is spectacular. Decades of stage experience combined with a fine sense of humour makes working with him a lot of fun. He is evil drug lord “Grimus” the main character in Sweet Mystery. See his work here
Sweet Mystery brings together Simon’s love of contrasting themes. both classical and modern, in music, drama, and art. Playing Grimus is every actor’s dream, of course; and arch villains are the most rewarding characters in the repertoire. And the theme of a tyrannical drug-lord, in a quasi-biblical struggle of good versus evil is timeless.
To add authority to his claim on the role of Grimus, Simon brings four decades of hard experience in live theatre – from Polonius to King Lear, from French farce to Waiting For Godot, from Ibsen to Dickens, he supplies a range of skills unmatched in Western Canada.
“From the moment I walked in (to rehearsals for the first experimental presentation of a synopsis of Sweet Mystery) I knew I had to get my game-face on. There was so much talent in the room – choreographers, dancers, actors – I knew I had to step up to the plate
