I’ll be heading to Florida next month to participate as a finalist in the Gulfshore Playhouse New Works Festival. This is the first time I’ll have any work represented in teh Sunshine State and I’m super jazzed about it. Also, very excited to be back in the room with LAST NIGHT IN INWOOD, and to meet the other playwrights who’s work will be presented.
For more information, visit the Gulfshore Playhouse website.
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!

Crumbs and Friends and me tonight!
It has been a while but I am getting some play in tonight!
I will be joining the one and only Winnipeg’s Crumb’s tonight to improvise our way into history. Join us, won’t you?
Friends of the cyber variety! It has been far too long since I have communicated with you! There are reasons, folks, and unfortunately some of them are terrible.
More on that later. In the meantime, COMEDY! That’s right. I’ll be making the funny for the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival as part of the live taping of DNTO on April 12. It’s live you guys! I can totally go rogue and there is nothing they can do about it! Ha ha! Streaking through the theatre here I come!!! Hm? Oh…wait. This just in. It’s pre-recorded. So you better get your butt into the theatre to see what shenanigans* I pull, ’cause they won’t likely be making it to air.
Find out more about the show and the other performers here and get your tickets to see it here.
More on everything else at a later date!
(*No shenanigans will be pulled, but I will be telling a terrifically humiliating story that you would have to buy me some drinks to hear other wise)
