Barry Brodie is an accomplished writer, director, and actor. He teaches a course on the creative process at the University of Windsor, and is a principal of SHO Art, Spirit & Performance.
Brodie began writing in prep school where he wrote his first one-act play. In university he wrote and produced three musical comedies, and his MA thesis was a play about St. Theresa of Avila. From the mid-1980s until 2004 he collaborated with Canadian poet-philosopher Kenneth G. Mills in adapting his lectures and poetry to the stage.
In November 2015, his provocative one-man production Threshold of Magic – The Death and Life of Tom Thomson hit the Canadian stage. His latest book, Tom Thomson – On the Threshold of Magic, will include the complete play along with additional material offering insight into the creative journeys of both the playwright and this iconic Canadian painter. The book is set for publication in April of 2017 for Canada 150.
