The Work

I’m thrilled to announce the publication of my first novel, The Work, from Stonehouse.

About The Work

When aspiring stage-manager Rebecca Weir falls for the married director of the SenseInSound theatre company, she initiates a love triangle –– and a working collaboration –– which go on for two decades. Beginning in Toronto in the 1980s, The Work traces the rise and fall of SenseInSound. The director has the status of a guru within the company, and his disciples call their method The Work. Is he pushing people to creative heights or abusing his power? Is The Work a cutting-edge artistic practice, a road to personal healing, or a cult? And as his top deputy, is Rebecca complicit, or merely loyal? A historian trying to write about the company, many years later, has little to go on but internet searches –– that is, unless the women behind the man find a way to speak out.
