“John Hardy is a pleasure to watch..., an awe inspiring performance..., riveting.” A nationally known actor, director and playwright, in his thirty year career John has directed over one hundred professional productions and acted many of the great roles at some of the nation’s finest theatres including The Barter Theatre, The Cincinnati Playhouse, Off-Broadway at The Lamb’s Theatre. As a playwright he has had over seventy five productions of fifteen plays produced across the country and overseas.


RATTLESNAKE: A single actor plays sixteen characters in this epic story that spans thirty years and reaches from Texas to Paris, France.  One hour and forty five minutes including intermission.

Rattlesnake… beautifully acted and written…it rises to the kind of ritualistic intensity one does not often see, but always longs for, in contemporary theatre”
Asheville Express
“…a groundbreaking creation…. You have never seen anything like it… sixteen characters, a small cavalcade, come to life before our eyes, distinctly and convincingly.”
A! Magazine

A CHRISTMAS CAROL: The Charles Dickens classic will be executed by a single actor playing over forty roles.  Eighty minutes in one act or ninety five minutes with intermission.

"John Hardy's one-man version of A Christmas Carol... a stunning work of theatrical virtuosity. Run to see this; take the whole family. You will be transfixed from the first moment.... This play brings the story to life.... I've seen this story many times but never like this... it will be as if you are seeing it for the first time"
The Albuquerque Journal
