Debbie Patterson Nominated for The Siminovitch Prize for Theatrical Arts
Arts & Disability Network Manitoba is thrilled to nominate Debbie Patterson for the 2014 Siminovitch Prize.
The Siminovitch Prize shines a spotlight on excellence and innovation in Canadian Theatre with an annual prize worth $100,000. This year’s prize goes to a playwright recognized as a leader in theatre and whose work is transformative and influential.
Patterson has shown herself unequaled with her powerful and unique work in Canada. As a playwright, Patterson gives voice to those who feel isolated, stigmatized, and those who can’t socially engage. Lately, Patterson has found much of her inspiration from her disability, which distinguishes her particular skills from that of her peers. Patterson has all of the experience one would expect of the winner of the Siminovitch award for Playwrights. But she has something others don’t – the insight and ability to show the world what others don’t perceive, and what the audience wants to learn about.
