The previous Uncle-Unlimited.org featuring updates on Nigel's career has found a temporary new home at Uncle Unlimited. The previous site has been experiencing technical difficulties and is no longer available.

Nigel is currently on stage in Toronto. The Last Confession, written by Roger Crane, explores the mystery sorrounding the sudden death of Pope John Paul I who was found dead only 33 days after his election in 1978. Nigel plays Cardinal Villot, the secretary of state.

The play runs at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, Toronto until June 1, 2014.

Then the production goes on a world tour visiting Los Angeles and Australia.

Tour dates:

June 10-29, 2014: Los Angeles (Ahmanson Theater)
August 2-16, 2014: Perth (His Majesty's Theatre)
August 20-24, 2014: Brisbane (Lyric Theatre QPAC)
August 27-31, 2014: Adelaide (Her Majesty's Theatre)
September 3-14, 2014: Melbourne (Comedy Theatre)
September 24-October 5, 2014: Sydney (Theatre Royal)

In an excellent review, The Toronto Star gave the production 4 out of 4 stars and wrote "The less saintly crew are led by Nigel Bennett, who does a splendidly forceful job as the close-minded Cardinal Villot, holding his own with [David] Suchet in a wonderful climactic scene where they pull out all the stops in a battle between good and evil."

Read the full review here.

The world tour is the reason why Nigel is not appearing in the 2014 season of the Stratford Festival. There we have Geraint Wyn Davies playing Antony in Shakespeare's "Antony and Cleopatra" (August 3-September 20) and the Cook in Bertold Brecht's "Mother Courage and her Children" (May 15-September 21).
