PLAYWRITING 

A Saving Grace

A collaboration of poetry and playwriting with Lorna Crozier, this play is based on Lorna Crozier’s book A Saving Grace.

Gail and Bob live in Horizon Saskatchewan. Their lives are turned upside down when Sheila comes back to town with the death of her mother. Gail’s secret is revealed and she must come to terms with her muse, Mrs.Bentley, who won’t stop pursuing her until she is heard.

This is a work in progress. Production dates will be posted as soon as they are confirmed.

The Indigo Kids

Tina Biello wrote and acted in this children’s play written for a school tour. The play is about an autistic child and how they manage—or don’t manage—at school.

Jesse is a writer and has a very unique story to share. She and her best friend Susie venture to tell Jesse’s story about her first day of school, and beyond. Jesse has autism, and as the play progresses, the audience sees how the simplest of tasks are not so easy for her.

Jesse, Susie, Gigi, and the other characters go on an adventurous ride through school memories and Jesse learns through trial and error how to communicate with everyone in the “outside world.”
