Never Let the Crew See You Cry

LINDA WOOD EDWARDS, Playwright, Stage Manager:|
Linda is blessed to have a really interesting mother with a knack for telling stories and a talented director and cast to help bring them to life. She is especially delighted to share her mom’s story as a Flight-Line Mechanic in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. Linda’s most recent play Four in the Crib was an audience favourite at the 2012 Edmonton Fringe Festival, and again in June 2013 for Alberta Seniors Week. Linda's first play Spring Alibi (2005 Edmonton Fringe, directed by David Cheoros) garnered a Sterling Award nomination for Best New Fringe Work and was remounted in 2006 (Capital Fringe, Washington DC) and 2007 (Nakai Comedy Arts Festival, Whitehorse YT). Spring Alibi was also named Best Play at the TheatreONE Festival in Saskatchewan (2012). Linda’s homage to football fans True Grid sold out (2007 Fringe) and was remounted in 2010 as an official Grey Cup event. Both runs were directed by David. Linda wrote Support Ho’s, her tribute to girlfriends, for the 2009 Fringe. When not writing or going to CFL games, Linda is a governance/bylaw specialist for non-profits and a funeral celebrant.
