Q&A with Emily
Name your favourite YPT production:
Describe your favourite Drama School memory:
There is not one specific memory I can point to, but instead a collective feeling of belonging. Every class represents a piece of the YPT family and that is something I know I will cherish forever.
What would the central theme of a play written about you be?
The central theme of a play written about me would definitely be smiling through it all.
As the 2019/20 Season theme is the Seven Ancestral Teachings, what is something you appreciate about Toronto and why?
I consider myself so very lucky to be able to call Toronto home. I deeply appreciate that Toronto is a place where constructive conversations, deep thinking and expression in a wide variety of ways is accepted and encouraged.
