I’ve just returned from an incredible week at The Banff Centre as part of the 2016 Playwrights Colony. I was there with my collaborator Molly MacKinnon working on a new piece titled Never The Last, which premiers next month at the rEvolver Festival. I was so grateful to meet some brilliant minds from across Canada, and to enjoy the facilities at Banff. Molly and I worked round the clock to turn out two new drafts in one week – the result will be on stage just three weeks from now!
Another nice thing: I am in great company as one of six finalists for this year’s RBC Tarragon Emerging Playwrights Prize. You can read more about the other amazing finalists here.
It feels like a really wonderful time to be a playwright in Canada – I’m filled with gratitude. I also just literally got home from Banff, so I’m going to bed. Goodnight, friends.
