Theatre Ontario is excited to announce that the Playwright-in-Person at our 2016 Summer Theatre Intensive will be Mark Crawford!

Crawford_MarkMark’s first play, Stag and Doe, premiered at the Blyth Festival in 2014. Stag and Doe has quickly become one of the most-produced Canadian plays of the decade, with seven subsequent professional productions in less than two years.

His second play, Bed and Breakfast, premiered in 2015 at the Thousand Islands Playhouse, where it broke box office records as the best-selling show in the history of their Firehall Theatre. Bed and Breakfast is scheduled for production at Centaur Theatre in 2017. Stag and Doe and Bed and Breakfast are published as a two-play volume by Scirocco Drama.

His new play, The Birds and the Bees, premieres in 2016 at the Blyth Festival. It already has subsequent productions programmed at Port Stanley Festival Theatre and Prairie Theatre Exchange.

In 2017, Carousel Players presents the world premiere of Mark’s play for young audiences: Boys, Girls, and Other Mythological Creatures.

 As an actor, Mark has performed at theatres across Canada.

On Wednesday August 10th, Mark will be visiting Trent University as part of our Summer Theatre Intensive to do a reading from Stag and Doe, Bed and Breakfast, and The Birds and the Bees, followed by a Q&A.
