We're absolutely ecstatic to announce that our very own Jivesh Parasram is the recipient of the Ken McDougall Award at the 2017 Harold Awards.
Here's a bit about the award according to the Harolds' website:
"Established in 1995 by Buddies In Bad Times Theatre, Platform 9 and Theatre Passe Muraille, the annual Ken McDougall Award serves to acknowledge a promising emerging director. Previous recipients have been: Franco Boni, Cathy Gordon, Michael Waller, Chris Abraham, Simon Heath, Patrick Conner, Ellen Ray Hennessey, Rebecca Brown, Nina Aquino, Kimahli Powell, Brendan Healy, Bea Pizano and Jacob Zimmer."
THAT'S SOME GOOD COMPANY, JIV!
Jiv was actually awarded a Harold Award last year. So he's won a Harold in back-to-back years. He's the Tom Hanks of the Harolds!
