LINDA WOOD EDWARDS, Playwright, Stage Manager:|
Linda is blessed to have a mom with a wicked sense of humour and knack for telling stories. She is delighted to have this great cast and director sharing some of these with you. Linda's first play
Spring Alibi (2005 Edmonton Fringe, directed by David Cheoros) garnered a Sterling Award nomination for Best New Fringe Work. Spring Alibi was remounted at the 2006 Capital Fringe Festival in Washington DC and the 2007 Nakai Comedy Arts Festival in Whitehorse, Yukon (watch for it in Saskatchewan this fall!). At the 2007 Fringe, Linda’s homage to football fans True Grid sold out and was remounted in 2010 as an official Grey Cup event. Both runs were directed by David. Linda wrote Support Ho’s, her homage to girl friends, for the 2009 Fringe. Linda wrote Beans and Rice for young audiences and has learned a ton by stage managing several of Gerald Osborn's funny, quirky shows. When not writing or going to CFL games, Linda is a governance/bylaw specialist for non-profits and a funeral celebrant. Linda's mom routinely kicks her butt at crib (but mom lets her brother win…).
