Iris Turcott - A Remembrance by Matt McGeachy

On September 22, 2016, my friend and mentor Iris Turcott – a giant of our profession – died, leaving a prominent hole in my heart, which I imagine is about the size of the small blue ashtray that she used to keep on the blue harvest table in her living room in Toronto, where she helped to shape the Canadian theatrical landscape, and also shape me.

Some people make a difference. This is true in all walks of life. In the world of Canadian dramaturgy, Iris Turcott made a difference. A big one.
