She is the playwright, translator and performer of my pregnant brother, a multiple award winning solo show that toured to theatres and festivals across Canada, in Scotland, England, France, and Belgium. With her brother James, she created the response piece my playwright sister and the full two-hour double bill premiered at the PIVOT Festival in Whitehorse in 2015. It will also take part in the 2017 edition of the High Performance Rodeo.
