- They Let Down Baskets
Berni Stapleton is a Labrador actor and playwright of unique distinction. She works to explore the inner lives of Newfoundlanders who find the extraordinary within the ordinary. Her plays Offensive to Some, Shakespeare’s Women, and Women in a Monkey Cage, feature characters who scrape their way out of seeming powerlessness towards a mystic heroism. Berni’s film and television roles pulse with inner courage beneath veneers of crystalline fragilities. Witness her performance in the Bravo! feature The Pasta King of the Caribbean.
