Christopher Prentice is a classically trained actor based in Chicago, with work ranging from Shakespearean tragedies to contemporary comedies. He most recently played Richard III for The Shakespeare Project of Chicago.
Christopher Prentice is brilliantly funny playing it straight as Anne’s barely willing suitor Slender; he has great command of the text and mastery of every malapropism … Malpropism-prone Slender gains most of our sympathy here thanks to a fantastically funny performance by Prentice, who has apparently been at the festival for three seasons but was hitherto unnoticed by me. He mangles the English language masterfully; his anxious ambivalence about marriage – and everything else – is a treat.
