My work largely explores historical and social issues, but from an individual perspective. I am interested in how the large societal forces affect the average person. Although I am male, I seem to gravitate towards female protagonists.
During the pandemic I completed four full-length plays and a few short ones. In 2022 these works started reaching audiences:
* My short play "Working Stiffs" had a performance in Sicamous, BC,
* The Little Lion Theatre in London, UK did a staged reading of my full-length play "Prospects and Pigeon Pie,"
* I did a Craft Bites! reading of the play I am pitching here, "Shafted."
* My domestics comedy "We Are Family" was a quarter-finalist in the Screencraft Cinematic Stage Play Competition.
I also collaborate with Brian Richardson on plays about the early days of White settlement in Manitoba.
