Caitie is a dramaturg, arts educator, playwright, and emerging screenwriter who is as excited about telling stories as she is about empowering others to do the same. Caitie has facilitated several playwriting programs for youth and young-in-craft artists across Toronto in schools and through arts organizations like Expect Theatre (KidCAST), and Scarborough Arts (Youth Playwrights Hub). From 2017 – 2020 she was Program Director of the Young Playwrights Unit at Tarragon Theatre. She is now the dramaturg for Driftwood Theatre’s Beyond the Bard’s Playwrights Unit and Playwright-In-Residence Program. Select writing credits include PARADISE COMICS (Filament Incubator) and GASH (Ergo Pink Festival). In 2018 she was a runner up for the Ellen Ross Stuart Award, and has received funding from the OAC and TAC for her newest works in development. She is currently working on a feature-length animation script called BOXED IN: A SERVICE DOG STORY. It’s exactly what you think it’s about.
