Rick’s first professionally produced play, Talk to Me! Talk to Me!, co-written with Bruce McManus and Norm Dugas was commissioned and toured by PTE some 20 or so years ago.  Since then, his plays have been produced in theatres in Winnipeg and across Canada and including Beowulf, Shakespeare’s Dog, The Odyssey, and Strike! co-written with Danny Schur.  The Secret Mask, which premiered this season at PTE, will be seen this fall in Ottawa at GCTC.  Rick is writing the full-length version of NOLA, a Short Shot written for and read at the 2012 Carol Shields Festival  with the assistance of the Manitoba Arts Council’s Major Arts Award.  Rick lives in Winnipeg with his wife, daughter, and two and a half cats.
