Michael Kras: Playwright-in-Residence

From Michael's Instagram:
I’m VERY excited to officially announce that I’ll be the 2019/2020 Playwright-in-Residence at @roseneath!

I’ll be spending much of the next year developing my new play, The Boys, with Roseneath’s invaluable expertise and resources.

Endless thanks to Roseneath Theatre and Andrew Lamb for giving me and my play a home this season, and to the @ontarioartscouncil for their generous support of the residency. I can’t wait to get started!

Michael Kras remembers "This One Time, at Magic Camp…"

From the August 15 article "This One Time, at Magic Camp…" by Michael Kras at Medium:

Michael Kras in Intermission magazine

From Intermission Magazine:
I get where they’re coming from; the buzz about my hometown hasn’t exactly been glowing in recent years. But Hamilton is going through a renaissance. We’re not “Steel Town” anymore. This little big city is a forty-five-minute drive down the 403 from Toronto; take that car another ten minutes off the highway and up James Street North, and a loud phrase painted across a stretch of sidewalk says it all: “Art is the new steel.”

Not too long ago, though, this wasn’t the case.
