Best Playwright

Daniel MacIvor

Flattered to be honoured in this category, given his distinct from-awayness, MacIvor wishes he could be in Halifax more often, but his work keeps taking him to other cities. To keep him here, he says he’d like to start a small theatre company in Halifax, “not about a building, more about a way to work.” And the reports of his retirement from acting? “I think I’m pulling a Cher,” he says, a little sheepishly. “I’m starting to miss it. I’m starting on a solo piece called This Is What Happens Next, about a guy who makes a decision and goes back on it.”

First runner up: Jennifer Overton
