Anna Cummer

End of an Incredible Season

With the closing of Macbeth, Anna's 2015-2016 theatrical season has come to an end. And what a season it was!  Starting with The Shoplifters at Theatre Calgary under the inspired guidance of Haysam Kadri, spending Christmas with the splendid Kate Newby and wonderful cast of The Mousetrap at Vertigo Theatre, being delighted by the shenanigans of the amazing cast and crew at Lunchbox during Book Club, and finally cutting loose in The Shakespeare Company's Macbeth deftly directed by the talented Craig Hall. Three of the four shows broke box office records at their respective companies.  Onwards toward 2016-2017...

Calgary Critics Awards 2015

Anna won the "Best Actress in a Play" Critter award this season. Thank you to Louis B. Hobson, Stephen Hunt, and Jenna Shummoogum for the nomination and honour.



Anna will be playing opposite Kyle Jesperson in Duncan Macmillan's Lungs produced by Verb Theatre, directed by Jamie Dunsdon. A young couple wants to have a baby... or do they? This "distinctive, off-kilter love story ... gives voice to a generation for whom uncertainty is a way of life" (The Guardian).  The two-hander runs at the Epcor's Motel from Feb. 5th-14th 2015.
