JUNE 2018

A busy spring, summer on the coast, exciting projects on the horizon.


Search and Destroy.  A 1/2 hour Hulu network pilot for the new Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia) series. This smart, edgy show, based on her novel 'Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl' is set in Portland amidst the west coast punk music scene of the late 90's.  Yeah - Ms. Brownstein rocks it. Proud to be a part of this one.

- LEAP Playwriting Intensive.  Workshopping new plays by young writers. These fearless, young voices are the future of Canadian theatre. Names to watch out for.

- More audiobook narration. Madeleine Thien's Certainty  is a formidable novel by a seasoned author. Available for download on Amazon.  

- On faculty at On The Mic studios, teaching Intro to Acting for Voice-Over. An impressive, state-of-the-art facility in Gastown, entirely dedicated to VO training.  Classes ongoing.


- 2 shows at the Stanley Theatre next season:  A Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time  by Mark Haddon & Simon Stephens, directed by incoming artistic director Ashlie Corcoran; The Orchard (After Chekhov) by Sarena Parmar, directed by Jovanni Sy - currently playing at The Shaw Festival.


Organic gardening and beekeeping at Cedar Cottage Community Garden.  Our beautiful garden is celebrating it's 10th anniversary of volunteer driven sustainable growing.  On July 21, 2018,  we will be hosting a pop-up long table community dinner.  Laara will chef! - with plenty of help from our members. Culled mostly from our own gardens - this communal meal will be a gorgeous evening of food, wine, and stories. Under the stars, in our own back yard.  Please join us.  Tickets available through Eventbrite.
