Latvian director sets a trap
by Emily Wilkinson
The psychological thriller that brought success to hitherto unknown playwright Robert Thomas opens with the Lakeshore Players April 25, under the direction of veteran of the stage Robert Verniks.
Set in the French Alps, Trap for a Lonely Man is the story of Daniel Corban, a man who has lost his wife and who seems in danger of losing his mind. The play’s tension is heightened when Corban is visited by a young priest, who claims to have found his runaway wife. This fact is called into question, only raising more questions and adding to the mystery of Madam Corban’s disappearance – a story threaded with deception, corruption, and the suspense of an imminent inheritance. Indeed, the play is considered one of the greatest in “whodunit” literature.
Helming the production is the Latvian-born Robert Verniks, a director who got his start at the Latvian State Theatre School and won a scholarship to the Moscow Art Theatre’s Third Studio. Between 1945 and 1951, he acted and directed in various West German theatres and has since performed in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and has directed in England and the US. Verniks also teaches acting at Concordia University’s Continuing Education Department and is actively involved with the Lakeshore Players acting workshops.
Trap for a Lonely Man runs April 25 – 28 and May 2 – 5 at 1335 Lakeshore Dr. in Dorval. Shows are at 8 pm and admission is $12-$22. Info: (514) 631-8718.
