David Yee wins Governor General's Award for Drama
It was his second nomination. His first was for the lady in red dress. He is a past winner of the Mississauga Arts Award, also for his playwriting.
David, who graduated from the Sheridan-UTM program in 2000 is now Artistic Director of fu-GEN Theatre Company in Toronto. He will next be seen in the Factory Theatre revival of Leon Aureus’ Banana Boys, in which he co-starred for the original fu-GEN production and shared in a Dora nomination for Best Ensemble. This time out he will be joined by fellow Theatre and Drama Studies alumnus Matthew Gin.
In the introduction to one of David’s other plays, actor, playwright and theatre director, Daniel MacIvor refers to him affectionately as “a brat”. “The Sheridan-UTM Theatre and Drama Studies Program would heartily endorse that assessment,” said Patrick Young, Coordinator of the program. “But if anything, it increases our pride in his accomplishments. Congratulations, David!”
Sheridan’s Theatre and Drama Studies degree is offered jointly with the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM). The program celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2015.
