Writing Plays with John Muggleton

What does it take to take a play from idea to the stage? How do you revise a script? Join us in September to hear all about writing for the theatre with playwright John Muggleton.

John has been an actor, director, producer and playwright for over 30 years. Past acting credits include David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross (Best Production 2015 Capital Critics Awards), Speed-The-Plow (Outstanding Male Actor nomination Prix Rideau Awards, Best Actor nomination Capital Critics Circle Awards), and The Extremely Short New Play Festival 2017 to name a few. A member of ACTRA, The Canadian Actors Equity Association and the Playwrights Guild of Canada, John was a co-founder of the Ottawa Acting Company, and is the current manager of GNAG's Act Ottawa and Artistic Director of Kanata Acting Studio.

As a playwright, John's first full length play, Burn, was nominated for Best New Play of 2017 by the Ottawa Capital Critics Circle and has since been produced in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K.  In 2022 Burn played to sold out audiences and rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the world's biggest performing arts festival.
