Recent acting grads taking character studies to Fringe stage

Two UWindsor drama alumni will present a duo of solo performances this week during the London Fringe Festival.

Billy Chandler and David Hudyma, both of whom completed their degrees this spring, have reworked material from a fourth-year character study assignment into “Out of Our Hands,” a duo of one-man shows.

Chandler says both men find life is sometimes a one-sided conversation or a moment of silence.

“David’s character is living with epilepsy, and at a turning point where he must decide whether or not to get a life-changing surgery,” says Chandler. “My character is a poet whose partner has lost his hearing, so his art has to adapt to the limitations thereof. He works towards creating poetry with and through sign language to share his performance with his partner.”

The show opened on the weekend and will enjoy four more performances: June 7, 9, 10 and 11, at the Arts Project in downtown London. Find details and ticket information on the London Fringe website.
