Hi friends,

Today I am Arts Calling Norm Reynolds!

Norm Reynolds is a Toronto-based playwright and actor. He is adapting Anne Tyler’s “Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant” for the stage. “An October Crisis” is slated for the Toronto Queer Theatre Festival. “Gay Positive” was short-listed for the Short & Sweet Festival (Sydney, Australia). “Two-Hander” played at the inaugural Newmarket National Ten Minute Play Festival. A hit at the first Summerworks Festival (CBC Radio, NOW Magazine), “Put Up Your Hand” was performed by the author in Toronto at the Red SandCastle Theatre. “The Good-bye Play” was staged at the Playwrights of Spring Festival and at TheatreStarts (Aurora, Ontario); it was originally workshopped at the Humber School for Writers with Edward Albee. Reynolds has published short fiction in the United States and Canada, and book reviews in the Canadian national press. He is a thirty year member of the Playwrights Guild of Canada.
