What's New

My new play Dead Letter is scheduled to premiere at Edmonton’s Workshop West Playwrights Theatre, running May 17 – June 2, 2024. Tickets are available at Workshop West Playwrights' Theatre.

The published version of my play Matara has just been released by NeWest Press.

I am honoured to be participating in the 2024 edition of The Shoe Project, mentoring a group of immigrant and refugee women from around the world who are writing essays about their arrival and adaptation to Canada, using a pair of shoes as the focus of their story. The performance of these stories, produced by SkirtsAfire Festival, will take place on March 2-3, 2024 in Edmonton, Alberta. For more information about the venue and tickets, visit SkirtsAfire.
