The Marvel of His Days

‘The Marvel of His Days’ is a play in development about poet John C. Walker who was mute and quadriplegic but was able to invent a unique method of communication. A sister’s deep relationship, respect and celebration.

Chapter One: During Culture Days 2011, the first beginning explorations of ‘The Marvel of His Days’ were explored and a 10 minute physical piece presented with Peggy Coffey directing, guiding and inspiring.

Chapter Two: during SpringWorks 2012 a 55 minute staged reading was performed at Factory163 to an enthusiastic audience. Peggy Coffey director extraordinaire.

Chapter Three: For Culture Days 2012, I gave a selected reading of some of John’s adult poetry which followed an emotional and creative journey in John’s words and thoughts.

Chapter Four: A possible collaboration with a Toronto theatre – stay tuned.
