What would the central theme of a play written about you be?

Each day is a gift, not a right.

As the 2019/20 Season theme is the Seven Ancestral Teachings, what is something you appreciate about Toronto and why?

I appreciate the remarkable diversity and the abundance of cultures and languages. I love the fact that each neighbourhood has its own distinct character and pulse.
