I’m honoured to have been nominated for a Saskatoon and Area Theatre Award for Outstanding Original Script for Many Fires. It’s a huge honour to be recognized alongside folks I respect so much: Kim Senklip Harvey, Caleigh Crow, Jennifer Wynne Webber, and Todd Devonshire.
Congratulations to the many colleagues and friends nominated for these awards!
Next up for me is an original piece I will be presenting at an exciting, underground performance festival. I’ll be showcasing some works in progress from a larger piece I am currently creating. I’m calling the excerpts A Man, A Clown, A Man.
A bit about the piece (which may raise more questions than it answers): a clown comes to terms with his masculinity – or tries to – while a poet looks deeply into himself – or tries to.
The festival takes place at AKA/Paved Arts in Saskatoon January 7th and 8th, 2017. Stay tuned for the final schedule.
I am so proud and humbled to have been nominated for a Saskatoon and Area Theatre Award for Achievement in Directing for my work on Stop Kiss. That play received 3 other SATAward nominations (Outstanding Performance (Female) for Jenna-Lee Hyde, Outstanding Set Design for Jenna Maren, Outstanding Sound Design for Gilles Zolty. My collaborators Jenna Maren, Angela Kemp, and Dakota Hebert (on Stop Kiss, Stop Kiss and Saskatchewan Outdoors respectively) were also nominated for Outstanding Emerging Artist. Congrats to all the nominees! The awards ceremony takes place at the end of September!
The University of Saskatchewan’s drama department was just featured in an article in the Arts and Science magazine (page 15). I was interviewed for the article. It’s worth a read, for sure. Persephone Theatre Artistic Director Del Surjik also has some very interesting words on the role of the drama department (page 19).

I wrote an article for Saskatoon’s Theatre Blog entitled Working with Established Artists as an Emerging Artist. Check it out if you have some time!
Thanks to all who came out last night to see Trick or Treat presented by Theatre Howl. You have one more night to catch the scares of two locally-written plays produced in Saskatoon homes! It’s been a blast playing Loner with such a fun team. Hope to see you tonight (and at Nino’s on Broadway after the show for a closing celebration!).
