So the news is out: it was officially announced yesterday. Starting this September, I am going to be the new artistic director of Buddies in Bad Times Theatre in Toronto, Canada’s oldest and longest running queer theatre company. I couldn’t be more excited.
It’s a huge honour, a big new step in my career, and I am thrilled to take the reins of this groundbreaking company, which has played such a significant role in my own development as a queer artist. Buddies’ mandate and mission couldn’t be more closely aligned with my own values and I look forward to continuing to create boundary-pushing theatre on our stages with an even greater diversity of queer voices and perspectives.
