“Director Dennis Garnhum and a stellar cast all work together to pull off a compassionate, humorous and thought provoking production that stays vivid in the mind of its audience well after it’s conclusion.”

BLUE/ORANGE at Belfry Theatre Victoria and P. T.E. Winnipeg WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, October 2003 Chantal Desgardins

“Aided by director Dennis Garnhum’s sure hand, Vinci whirls through to an inevitable but disturbing conclusion. This production heralds a future for Vinci as a regional theatre favorite.” VINCI at Canadian Stage - Toronto VARIETY – April 2002 by Iris Winston

It was a masterpiece of sights, a spectacle of swashbuckling and a tale of touching romance. Dennis Garnhum has created an awe-inspiring, fairy tale of the average man’s ability to become a hero.” THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL at the Stratford Festival BEACON HERALD – May 2002 by Laura Czekaj

“This new play benefits from nuanced performances and bold direction. It has received a striking production by director Dennis Garnhum, who confirms his reputation as a talent to watch. The production is strong and emotionally affecting.
