4 of a Kind

Review by Norah Pendergast

The play, 4 of a Kind, has a great premise which many people can relate to: strangers who car-pool home from university for the holidays. Sounds innocent enough. Throw in some crazy personalities, and the little VW beetle takes a detour towards insanity. Written by nineteen-year-old St. Peters native, Jonah Anderson, 4 of a Kind was brought to life by five youthful actors at the St.Peters Courthouse Theatre this summer.

Adam MacIsaac unleashes great physical comedy in the role of “Dave,” a nerdy germophobe. Jonah Anderson plays “Tim,” a Hawaiian shirt clad narcoleptic, who quickly finds himself a new enemy in “John,” a hot-tempered beef-cake, played by Justin MacDonald. The group of car-poolers is made complete by the beautiful and coveted car-owner, “Brittany,” played by Haley Thompson. The bickering commences shortly after introductions are made. Act One is complete when Brittany’s patience run out and she abandons the motley crew on the road side, left to their own devices.

In Act Two, the boys are picked up by an eccentric trucker, played by Ben MacInnis. The trucker and nerdy Dave happen to have the same flamboyant taste in music. A hilarious sing-along ensues to the chagrin of Tim and John and to the delight of the almost full house.

Jonah Anderson is an accomplished writer, he has written dinner theatres and plays, two of which have been previously produced at the Courthouse Theatre. Demonstrating his creative tenacity, Jonah was motivated to improve 4 of a Kind after it was rejected from a festival of original plays that was held at his Nova Scotia university. He added a second act and extra eccentricity to the personalities of the characters. His efforts have resulted in a hilarious success.

Jonah will attend musical theatre performance school in Ontario this year. He has the ultimate goal of becoming a film actor, with a stop in New York City along the way to make an appearance in Saturday Night Live. If Jonah actually does succeed in making it to the big time—say Emmy or Oscar (there is no reason to think that he won’t), it will be an exciting night for the community of St. Peters Bay.
