My play It Started With an Allergy, which I last performed at the Edmonton Fringe in 2015, is getting a production via Zoom! Spoonie Theatre in Ocean, NY, USA, will be doing the show this fall. Stay tuned…
We’ve heard from some supporters that they’d rather contribute directly to the show instead of paint, so here we are: until May 16, 2020, via our fundraiser on Facebook, you can make a monetary donation directly to the world premiere of Alex and Michael and Hannah. Click here.
Part of the reason I applied for my current artists’ residency was its location: the French Riviera is among those almost mythical places you read about. Where the gargantuan artists and authors worked, where water, sky, and wine blend together. And, it’s 5 minutes from Cannes.

I used to wonder if writing is what I should be doing,Continue reading “Why I love theatre technicians.”

So. StageStruck, the Edmonton Regional One-Act festival happened this past weekend. I stopped posting a while ago about how The Ugly Princess was going, because things very nearly went…pear-shaped, as they would say in Scotland. (That’s one of my favourite UK expressions, after “mingin’ ” – stinky – and “bollocks” – self-explanatory). BUT, everyone pulledContinue reading “Busy busy Acting Writing WOW”
The Ugly Princess will open the 2015 StageStruck! one-act festival at: 7 pm 27 February 2015 La Cite Francophone, 8627 Rue Marie-Anne Gaboury Northwest, Edmonton. Tickets are on sale NOW!
Okay, it’s also about sex and drinking (when I could still do that) in Scotland, and cats, as well as uteruses (uteri…?) It was confirmed today that my redux of It Started With an Allergy will be on at the Strathcona Edmonton Public Library for Fringe this summer. YAY!
