meet Heather Morrow – Director and Playwright

Heather Morrow is an Edmonton-based playwright who daylights as a LINC teacher, teaching English to new immigrants and refugees to Canada. She was bitten by the theatre bug early — at 5 — but only because she wanted to tell stories and hadn’t learned to write yet, so instead she acted them out. Her first play was performed in Edmonton with a local teen group and she’s never looked back. She worked with dramaturg Vern Thiessen on her play Crushed, first performed at the Walterdale Theatre. While living in Scotland she produced her play Take a Bite at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2007, remounting it in Calgary and Edmonton in 2011. She followed that with Stories of Love and Hate, The Ugly Princess [a bent fairytale], and her solo show It Started With an Allergy, about being (mis)diagnosed with endometriosis. She’s recently started trying out short films too. See you at the Fringe.
