In this week’s episode, I sit down with Matt Mackenzie. Matt Mackenzie is an Edmonton based playwright, the Artistic Producer of Punctuate! Theatre, and the founder of Pyretic Productions. In our conversation today, we discuss how he began writing and his time at the National Theatre School, the importance of not only building a strong network of like-minded individuals in the emerging stages of your career but also continuing to foster new connections throughout your career outside of your own community, as well as what he has learned from working as a playwright in different places across the country. We also discuss his work with both Pyretic Productions and Punctuate! Theatre and how often times it is the first step in making something happen that is the most difficult, what he has learned from past cross country tours and the advice he would give other playwrights and artists looking to create opportunities for themselves, as well as what audiences can expect from his upcoming show “The Particulars” and where he sees theatre in Canada, and more importantly cross country collaborations, headed in the future.
