It’s just been announced that my play JONNO will be presented as part of the 2018 Next Stage Theatre Festival in Toronto in January 2018. Who doesn’t want to visit Toronto in January you guys?! Seriously, I haven’t been to Toronto with a show since my Fringe Fest days, and I really love the city, so I am looking forward to reconnecting with it, and all the wonderful people who live there.
It should be an especially fun ride, since the Jian Ghomeshi scandal (which inspired this fictional play) started in Toronto, and I don’t think wounds have quite healed. I hope that JONNO adds to the discussion in a helpful and cleansing way, which it seemed to do at the Winnipeg Fringe in 2016. I myself have such conflicted feeling about the way the scandal was received, handled and ultimately resolved (or unresolved as the case may be.) Big ups to Paul Van Dyck for proposing to direct the play in the first place. Very much looking forward to seeing it!
