Another ‘Angry Women’ Juror

Margaret Brady - Juror #10

  Consider two strands in Margaret’s ‘pedigree’ — one genealogical, and another one theatrical.

  She has strong Island roots: her father’s family is from the Morell area, and she spent many happy summer vacations here.  She moved to PEI two years ago, and lives in Murray Harbour — “a lovely place,” she feels, where she has cultivated new hobbies such as rug braiding and knitting.  She has been encouraging family and friends to visit and learn to love the Island as much as she does.

  Theatrically, Margaret has extensive experience, both on-stage and off, with a number of Ontario theatre groups — the Milton Players, Georgetown Little Theatre, Acton Old Town Hall Dinner Theatre, and Blackhorse Theatre.  Favourite roles have been Aunt Annie in Foxfire, Lottie in Enchanted April, and Ruth in Calendar Girls.  She got connected with ACT by working backstage for Rainbow Valley.  Bit again by the theatre bug, and excited by ACT’s choice of 12 Angry Women, she lined up an audition.  She is enthusiastic about acting ‘in-the-round’ at the four venues where the play will be performed.

  Margaret will be playing Juror #10.  “She’s not a very nice person,” Margaret admits, “but I love the challenge of conveying her anger and, frankly, her bigotry.”  What theme will she want the audience to take away?  “One need not follow the crowd.  We’ve all got to think for ourselves — sometimes outside the box.”
