Jocelyn joins Canadian Stage Co.

New A.D. replacing departed Martin Bragg

TORONTO — Canada’s largest regional theater, the Canadian Stage Company, announced Wednesday that Matthew Jocelyn will assume the artistic directorship of the troupe when Martin Bragg departs at the end of March after 17 years.

Toronto-born Jocelyn, 51, has spent his entire career in Europe, most notably serving for 10 years as the artistic and general director of the Atelier du Rhin in Colmar, France, for which he was named a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture in 2008. Jocelyn’s sole North American credit to date was a well-received, wildly experimental version of Corneille’s “The Liar,” seen at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival in summer 2006.
