We’re based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. We like exploring text and the physical expression of thought. We ponder the meaning of theatre in our times, in our lives, and in our communities. Sure, we do it for ourselves (because we like doing it) as well as for our audiences (because without audiences we would not have “theatre”), but our primary reason for doing it is because we feel it matters.
Guy is a theatre maker and educator who approaches theatre as an opportunity for collaborative storytelling that illuminates the soul.

Theatre had always been central to Guy’s expression and identity. Then — long story short — Guy veered off into the corporate world until he couldn’t resist the Sirens’ call anymore. The Canada Council awarded him the JBC Watkins Award to go to grad school in the USA, where he directed Reckless, Transit of Venus, his adaptation of Shakespeare’s Winter’s Tale, and Hair, for which he was nominated Best Director for the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. Before returning to Canada, he was invited to direct Trust and Oleanna at Duke City Repertory Theatre in Albuquerque, and Sylvia at Theatre Tuscaloosa. Once home, he welcomed his baby son into the world and began not a new chapter, but a whole new book, as a father.
