Eric Woolfe is an actor and director. His latest play, Dear Boss is about Jack the Ripper and opens in Toronto this season. He began his career as an actor, and, as a result of frequent unemployment, branched out into puppeteering and playwriting in 1998. He is also furiously at work on Madhouse Variations, a trilogy of short horror plays adapted from writers who are smarter than he is.
