Playwright

Looking forward to finding more production and touring possibilities for original text and movement/text work, as well as adapting work into film, graphic novel, and other published literary works. 

Looking back First Dance (co-created with Jeff Fox and Lisa O'Connell), The Second Life (Pat the Dog Playwright Centre Competition winner), Journey to the East, and Searching for Marceau (Toronto Fringe Cutting Edge Award) are among the plays I developed, usually over many stages. I'm currently working on Variations on a Bowl of Soup (with Johnny Trinh) and Bulfinch's Mythology. A collection of poetry emerged from my work on Carnival of the Animals, due to be published by Dollhouse Publishing in 2021.

TC Playwright Searching for Marceau

A breakthrough piece, 'Searching for Marceau' took top honours at the TO Fringe Festival and has toured Ontario. It was due to have its international premier in Egypt and then COVID hit. This piece also took a circuitous route into being. It was originally just a collection of Mime pieces I'd had kicking around, the very last thing to come about was to have a written plot. The text became as dear and full as the movement, the show has given me a way forward working with Mime/Theatre pieces.
