Magnificence

This new work is based on Keir’s relationship with his late mother, May Ebbitt Cutler, former mayor of Westmount, founder of Tundra Books and the author of the award-winning, highly-praised memoir, I Once Knew An Indian Woman. A book that had a great effect on Keir as a child. The New York Times reviewed her book in 1973 stating, “Simplicity isn’t easy to find any more and neither is goodness. In this story they are stunningly exemplified.” The work will be directed by the award-winning, Paul Van Dyck.

Keir is a playwriting graduate of the National Theatre School, McGill University and has a PhD in theatre from Wayne State University in Detroit. Four of his solo shows have been broadcasted on television by BRAVO!/CANADA.
