I had the honour of assisting two fantastic playwrights with their workshops and presentations. I read Cassandra in The Suspect by Johnna Wright (adpated from the novel by L.R. Wright) and Bayley in In Care by Kenneth T. Williams.
Both Johnna and Ken are good friends, and I was so happy to work with them this week.

Coming up as part of the SaskTel Youth Tour 2016 at Persephone Theatre, I'll be directing (yes, DIRECTING!) Under Cover by Mark Haroun.
This will be my directing debut (under the mentorship of Persephone's Artistic Associate Daniel Macdonald).
Very much looking forward to taking on new challenges and experiences from the Director's chair.

Excited to be part of two new plays being workshopped at Spring Festival this year - In Care by Kenneth T. Williams, and The Suspect by Johnna Wright.
I am looking forward to being back on the river bank with Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan this summer. I'll be taking on the role of Margaret in Much Ado About Nothing, and the role of Emilia in Othello. Very excited to be a part of this ground-breaking season.
