Debuting in 2018, Person of Interest has been delighting audiences across the country. Those who enjoy the wave of stand-alone storytelling like CBC’s Vinyl Café, and National Public Radio’s The Moth podcasts, will crave this yarn spinning, edgy, comic tale.
“Person of Interest”, is an extremely topical tale, about a good, law-abiding citizen who hoped to volunteer in her community. When she applied for a police background check, she discovered she had a record, courtesy of the neighbours. And now she is considered a Person of Interest.
Award winning, celebrated actor, writer and Second City alumna Melody A. Johnson, returns with her new solo show Person Of Interest. Johnson has performed across stages in both Canada and the United Kingdom with her acclaimed Miss Caledonia, (2014 Ontario Presents TOURING ARTIST OF THE YEAR, 2013 Dora award nomination for both Best New Play, and Outstanding Actress).

“Melody A. Johnson proves once again, she is the kook supreme of the Canadian stage…I truly would pay money to see Johnson read the phone book… ”
— Richard Ouzonian, The Toronto Star
“Melody tells the story so beautifully that there are moments when she has the audience completely on her side even while in the same breath, we're questioning her sanity. Person of Interest is equally charming and entertaining. It was a pleasure to have Melody in our theatre. ”
— Danny Harvey, Rose Theatre Brampton
