Register on COOL to come and see this inspirational and entertaining piece that has made an impact on campuses across North America.
Meghan has been performing DISSOLVE since 2003. An unexpected success, Meghan has had the privilege of visiting high schools, universities, colleges, conferences and theatres with this dark, yet highly entertaining one woman show. She was a guest speaker for the Toronto Police Service’s Conference on Sex Crimes, and was honoured with a citation from the American Alliance for Theatre in Education. The success of DISSOLVE led to government funding to create a documentary film based on the issue of drug facilitated sexual assault, which led to a screenwriting nomination for Meghan at the Leo Awards, held in Vancouver in 2010. She was also commissioned by Green Thumb Theatre to write a play for young audiences. This resulted in BLIND SPOT, which toured high schools in Canada and was nominated for best production and best actress at the Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards in 2009. When not touring DISSOLVE, Meghan is a freelance actor and playwright, and is a 2011 YWCA Woman of Distinction nominee.
