Shaun Smyth

Playwright / Co-Creator

Shaun is honoured to have the opportunity to collaborate with artistic giant Tom Wilson on this incredible work.  Shaun and Tom have been sharing this path for nearly three years. It’s been a journey of a lifetime and has made a profound impact on Shaun’s artists soul.

Shaun is grateful to Tom for allowing him to be part of the creation of Tom’s deeply personal story of identity lost and found. It’s been a joy from start to finish and a gift to be embraced my Tom, his family and community.

These are the stories that must be shared. They will help build understanding and hopefully healing. I am grateful to be part of this offering.
