MEET THE PLAYWRIGHTS

These hot new Canadian dramatists bring gatecrashing ideas, serious politics, and fresh bracing language to the stage. They have created current, compelling characters never seen on our stages before, showing us how the very concept of human identity is shifting.

The playwrights include: Bilal Baig, a queer Muslim artist; Ellen Ringler, who has navigated the mental health system; Nikoletta Erdelyi, a young poet who uses a wheelchair, Radha Sciara-Menon, a brazen South Asian British Canadian playwright; Grace Campbell, a fearless writer, performer and visual artist living with a disability, Maddie Bautista, a Saudi Arabia-born Filipino theatre maker and composer/sound designer; Simone Dalton, a queer Trinidadian-Canadian playwright; Samson Brown, is a self described, Jamal Of All Hustles, with a primary focus on trans advocacy and the arts; and Carolyn Heatherington, an 89 year old internationally acclaimed actress who has proven to be an extraordinary playwright.
