About

Kaitlyn-Riordan-10483-8x10_previewKaitlyn is a three time Dora nominated actor from Montreal, who now calls Toronto home. Her acting resume can be found here.

She is currently touring ‘Maggie & Pierre’, Linda Griffiths’ one person show about the Trudeaus, around Canada (Thousand Islands Playhouse-Gananoque, Tarragon Theatre-Toronto, Grand Theatre-London: February 2019).

She is a founding member of Shakespeare in the Ruff and has performed in four of their productions (Sylvia, Imogen, Juliet, and as a puppeteer in ‘Macbeth: Walking Shadows’). She became the Artistic Director in 2017 and in 2018, wrote ‘Portia’s Julius Caesar’, a co-creation with Shakespeare, refocusing the play to centre on the female characters.

Up-coming:
‘The Winter’s Tale’ August 14th-September 2nd, 2019 in Withrow Park with Shakespeare in the Ruff

“Half the script is Riordan’s own writing; the other is drawn from 17 Shakespeare plays, including Julius Caesar, 4 sonnets, and a poem. Her achievement in weaving this all together so it comes across as a single – and credibly Elizabethan – voice is considerable.” The Toronto Star 3.5/4 stars
