About George F Walker

George F. Walker has been one of Canada s most prolific and popular playwrights since his career in theater began in the early 1970s. His first play, "The Prince of Naples," premiered in 1972 at the newly opened Factory Theatre, a company that continues to produce his work. Since that time, he has written more than twenty plays and has created screenplays for several award-winning Canadian television series. Part Kafka, part Lewis Carroll, Walker s distinctive, gritty, fast-paced comedies satirize the selfishness, greed, and aggression of contemporary urban culture. Among his best-known plays are "Gossip" (1977)- "Zastrozzi, the Master of Discipline" (1977)- "Criminals in Love" (1984)- "Better Living" (1986)- "Nothing Sacred" (1988)- Love and Anger" (1989)- "Escape from Happiness" (1991)- "Suburban Motel" (1997, a series of six plays set in the same motel room)- and "Heaven" (2000). Since the early 1980s, he has directed most of the premieres of his own plays. Many of Walker s plays have been presented across Canada and in more than five hundred productions internationally- they have been translated into French, German, Hebrew, Turkish, Polish, and Czechoslovakian. During a ten-year absence, he mainly wrote for television, including the television series "Due South," "The Newsroom," "This Is Wonderland," and "The Line," as well as for the film "Niagara Motel" (based on three plays from his Suburban Motel series). Walker returned to the theater with "And So It Goes" (2010). Awards and honours include Member of the Order of Canada (2005)- National Theatre School Gascon-Thomas Award (2002)- two Governor General s Literary Awards for Drama (for "Criminals in Love" and "Nothing Sacred")- five Dora Mavor Moore Awards- and eight Chalmers Canadian Play Awards."
