VIDEO: Murdoch's Hélène Joy Rehearses New Stage Show

The new production of Andrew Bovell's Speaking in Tongues is - to some extent - keeping it in the CBC family. Murdoch Mysteries' Hélène Joy and Republic of Doyle's Jonathan Goad star in the stage show, which opens tonight (Oct. 29) at The Company Theatre in Toronto. Directing the show is none other than one of the company's founders; Philip Riccio (the other founder is Republic of Doyle's Allan Hawco).

"It seemed like the best idea that either I or Allan would direct as opposed to having another director come in and have their own idea of how they wanted to work because the director, in the end, gets to dictate how the work is gonna happen.... Allan happened to be busy in St. John's doing whatever he's doing out there, I forget what he's working on, so I took over and quite liked it. This play in particular, when I first read it, I just thought such a great play and I was really excited about it. I just had a vision for it I thought would be appropriate and thought I would be an OK choice," Philip said when we asked him how he came about directing the show.
