Magnificence is the tenth original monologue by Montréal-born Keir Cutler. This new work is based on Keir’s relationship with his late mother, May Ebbitt Cutler, former mayor of Westmount, founder of Tundra Books and author of the award-winning, highly praised memoir I Once Knew An Indian Woman, a book that had a great effect on Keir as a child. The New York Times reviewed her book in 1973, stating, “Simplicity isn’t easy to find any more and neither is goodness. In this story they are stunningly exemplified.” The piece is directed by the award-winning Paul Van Dyck.
