Bio

I’ve been writing for theatre since just before the first Winnipeg Fringe Festival,  1989.  My most recent plays are Marriage: A Demolition in Two Acts (Prairie Theatre Exchange, Winnipeg), The Secret Mask (PTE Winnipeg,  GCTC Ottawa, Presentation House Vancouver), and Beowulf (Two Planks and a Passion Nova Scotia).  Other plays include Shakespeare’s Dog, adapted from Leon Rooke’s Governor General’s Award-winning novel, The Odyssey, and Strike! The Musical co-written with Danny Schur, now in pre-production as a feature film.

This year I’m co-writing a new play with Yvette Nolan commissioned by PTE, Both Alike in Dignity.  I’m also writing a play for Theatre Projects Manitoba about a couple going for Time Travel Therapy, Five Moments, and working with fifteen under-30’s artists to develop a playwriting/devised theatre hybrid creation laboratory in Theatre for Young Audiences at Manitoba Theatre for Young People. I live in Winnipeg with my wife, Martine, and our daughter, Charlotte.
