Tony Nardi has performed extensively in theatre. He's appeared at Montreal Theatre Lab, Theatre 2000, the Stratford Festival and the Great Canadian Theatre Company, and earned acclaim for his roles in Nineteen Eighty-Four (Montreal Gazette Critic's Award 1979); La Storia Calvino (Dora Mavor Moore Award nomination 1985); A Flea in Her Ear (Dora Mavor Moore Award nomination, 2001); and The Lesson (Dora Mavor Moore Award 2002).

An English translation was published in its entirety in the Fall 2000 issue of Canadian Theatre Review.

Two Letters received a 2007 Dora Award Nomination for Outstanding New Play. The three Letters have been filmed in front of a live audience in one take. His newly published book, Two Letters...And Counting!, is based on the earlier staged versions.
