A Nice Day In The Park
Well, Sky Gilbert is back with a new one act play that looks closely at his own feelings about his recent crisis with Buddies and trans politics. A Nice Day in the Park is anything but that; instead it is a confrontation between a young trans man and an old gay man  both of whom work for an AIDS service organisation. There is something going on between them; but it might not be quite what you imagine.

Sky Gilbert is a poet, novelist, playwright, filmmaker, theatre director, and drag queen extraordinaire.  He was co-founder and artistic director of Torontos Buddies in Bad Times Theatre -- one of the worlds largest gay and lesbian theatres -- from 1979 to 1997. He has had more than 40 plays produced and written 7 critically acclaimed novels and three award winning poetry collections. He has received three Dora Mavor Moore Awards as well as the Pauline McGibbon Award, and The Silver Ticket Award. There is a street in Toronto named after him: Sky Gilbert Lane.  His latest novel Sad Old Faggot (ECW Press) was critically acclaimed. His play about the criminalization of AIDS  Its All Tru  will be published by Playwrights Canada Press in 2019, and his accessible yet well documented analysis of the appeal of Shakespeare  Shakespeare: Beyond Science: When Poetry Was the World  will be published by Guernica in 2020. Dr. Gilbert is a professor of creative writing and theatre at the University of Guelph.
