It's Canada Day up here in Toronto. And it's the first day off I've had in a while. June was a whirlwind, and for that matter, July will be too. There are so many wonderful theatre things a-happening - The Blyth Festival where my play Prairie Nurse will have its premiere, The Fringe Festival - which I credit for being my launching pad as a playwright, The Summerworks Festival - two summers ago I immersed myself in 40 plays while on the awards jury, 25ish weeks preggers with a new theatre-goer in my belly.
In celebration of summer and all the delicious art we take for granted, I raise my glass of lemonade to toast The Ontario Arts Council on its 50th Anniversary. If not for the OAC, I wouldn't be the artist I am today.
