My Daughter’s Father, Sydney Murdoch
My Daughter’s Father is a glimpse into the loss of communication over the years, seasons and moments. Perhaps losing these words can be from an emotional block, a scar, but sometimes there is no conscious choice in the matter. One’s ability to find and use words slips away and with them goes the recollection of the past.

Come Home, Moot Entertainment
Living in another country – another continent – can be a daunting experience for anyone. For Connor Evans, a young man in his early twenties, a series of choices makes his stay in Australia a nightmare come true. Without home, family or friends, he turns down a dark path and enters a mind bending downward cycle of crime and drug abuse leading to his inevitable downfall.
Presented by theatre group Moot Entertainment, Come Home is a two man show that combines movement, live electronic music and theatrical narrative. Multiple award winning show at Pumphouse Theatre for the 2017 Calgary One Act Festival including Outstanding Production, Outstanding Original Script, Outstanding Direction, Technical Merit and Outstanding Male Actor.
