As an actor, director and dramaturg, I have been creating theatre for over 35 years. I have served as Apprentice Artistic Director at The Grand Theatre, Associate Artistic Director at the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre and am founding artistic director of zone41 theatre. 

 

My production of Brian Friel's Dancing at Lughnasa at The Shaw Festival garnered Best Revival of a Modern Play in the Wall Street Journal and Best Production of 2017 & Tootsie Award in Intermission Magazine. I also hold the 2015 Stratford Festival's Jean Gascon Award and the 2013 Gina Wilkinson Prize. 

 

New Works in Development: Sophia Fabiili’s Liars at a Funeral, Trish Cooper’s Children’s Special Services and stage adaptations of Margaret Laurence’s The Diviners & Daria Salamon’s The Prairie Bridesmaid. Scroll down to see my previous work.
