Author and Playwright
"I appreciate how [Anthony] Wynn edited their letters to highlight the many facets of their relationship and was struck by the boldness of some of their communications... A letter is such a simple thing. So is a staged reading. And yet in this show we see how transformative both can be."
- Candace Cheney, Lexington Herald-Leader
"The play is compelling... A funny, touching,
engaging piece of theatre, revealing an extraordinary
friendship convincingly in the friends' own words."
- From The OSCHOLARS review of Bernard and Bosie
by Anthony Wynn and Barry Morse
The all new one-man show, co-written by Anthony Wynn, incorporates elements from the hit stage show Merely Players, performed internationally by actor Barry Morse - combined with newly written pieces to form a fresh and cohesive new stage presentation. This tour de force two-act presentation examines the lives of a series of actors and others from Elizabethan times up to present day. It features more than a dozen separate characters, three of them women; and even a couple of musical numbers! It includes pieces on William Shakespeare, David Garrick, Edwin Booth, Henry Irving, Charles Dickens, Oscar Wilde, and more. From moving and heartfelt to comedic, the show literally runs the gamut of human emotion.
Anthony Wynn formulated and wrote a special stage show for actor Barry Morse entitled An Evening with Barry Morse, based on Morse's life and professional experience. While well-received by the actor, his declining health prevented him from performing the show in full prior to his death. Barry gave a partial performance of material in front of a live audience in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
