FINALIST FOR THE GOVERNOR GENERAL’S LITERARY AWARD FOR DRAMA

Upcoming: The Secret Mask’s American premiere at Next Act Theater, Milwaukee, November 2017

This heartwarming and often hilarious play tells the story of Ernie and George, an estranged father and son who are reunited when a debilitating stroke leaves Ernie with a speech disorder and memory loss. While George is undeniably hurt and betrayed by the man who abandoned him as a child, Ernie can’t remember his words, or where he lives. Together they must find a way to make sense of their past and their future through fractured memories and muddled language.
