Duval Lang


Duval has been very active in the dynamic growth of the Calgary and Alberta theatre community for close to 50 years. He was a co-founder and Artistic Director of Quest Theatre, a prominent Canadian theatre for young audience company for 25 of those years. In 2019 he co-founded Black Radish Theatre and starred in its inaugural production of Waiting for Godot. He is now busy as a freelance actor and director across the country. He has taught and mentored countless aspiring theatre artists over the many years. He has served on National Boards including the Professional Association of Canadian Theatres and ACTRA National and continues to serve on Calgary Arts Boards. He is listed as one of the 100 influential theatre builders/practitioners in the History of Theatre in Alberta. Duval is also a recipient of the prestigious Harry and Martha Cohen Award for significant and long-term contribution to theatre in Calgary. He has toured Canada many times as well as the US, the UK and Australia and has performed at the Olympic Arts Festival in Calgary in 1988 and Vancouver in 2010. He has been awarded and nominated several times for his acting and directorial work on stage in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Whitehorse. He is delighted, (and a bit nervous, being all on his own) to return to the Lunchbox stage. His last appearance was in Bow Valley Square in a play titled Trance Canada, an apt phrase that is echoed in this production. Like Georges, he is a firm believer that “The Future is Alive!”
