Playwriting students will work with Marcia Johnson. Marcia is a Toronto-based actor, writer, dramaturge and audiobook director. Her most recent play (in which she also acted) had its world premiere at Western Canada Theatre in Kamloops in February 2020. It is published by Scirocco Drama. In addition to plays, Marcia has written award-nominated radio dramas and opera libretti. For more on her writing, see her Playwrights Guild of Canada profile.
Some of Marcia's advocacy work includes being a founding member of CASA, a mentorship award for female South African playwrights; juror and dramaturge for Ergo Arts Pink Fest (a play development festival) and a core member of Got Your Back Canada.
