Ginny's one act play The Good Daughter was published in the Breakout Anthology of Manitoba Playwrights and enjoyed a sold-out run at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival where it was awarded Best of the Fest. Ginny's short plays Terroristas and The Propeller Moment have also been published by Scirocco Drama in anthologies. Ginny's other plays include Prairie Spirits (2009 Winnipeg Fringe Festival) and MBTV: Histoire en Direct – a bilingual play for young audiences. She is a member of the Playwrights Unit at Prairie Theatre Exchange where she is currently under commission for a play called Revenge and Co. and translating the play ‘What to do with Albert’ for PTE’s 2018/2019 theatre season.

Revenge & Co. follows the story of Paula and Emy, two women who run a small time revenge business in the opulent 1980s, where shoulders are padded and everyone wants a piece of the money pie. Need to deal with a bully at work? A nasty neighbour? Karma can be bought for an hourly rate. When things start to get personal, Paula and Emy learn the true nature of revenge and just how far they'll go to see justice served. (4 characters: 3 women, 1 man)
