#325 – John D. Huston

John D. Huston has performed in Canada, the U.K. & the States. A member of Canada’s Metis Nation, John’s lively career “culturally misappropriating the works and identities of dead white guys”, includes playing Tommy Douglas in Saskatchewan, William Lyon MacKenzie in Toronto, Shakespeare in England, & Charles Dickens across Canada. In 2017 he was privileged to portray Louis Riel for the 50th anniversary production of Canada’s longest running dramatic presentation, “The Trial of Louis Riel”.

In 2016, John performed Mark Leiren-Young’s, controversial play, “Shylock” at UNO, Canada’s festival of solo work. “SCREWTAPE”, John’s adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ “The Screwtape Letters”, garnered him a Best Actor nomination in 2015 from the Ottawa Capitol Critics’ Circle. His performance of “A Christmas Carol” earned him a second such nomination in 2016, the only non-Ottawa actor to be nominated two years running.
