About: I am delighted to be creating a new work for audiences across Ontario including those in my hometown of Peterborough. Over the past two years I’ve developed a new love for outdoor theatre–the only real way to see any!–and as a result am especially excited to write for the format, considering the (very visible) role of the audience in it.
