ABOUT THE PANELISTS:

sam Khalilieh: sam is an award-winning performer who is now a writer. His first play, Palestineman, was originally developed as an unacknowledged, self-loathing simmering just sitting in him -- quiet or loud, it didn’t matter -- it was there, anyhow. The play was then workshopped at the Toronto Fringe Festival where sam said; “I liked doing that”. It was because of the experience at the Fringe that sam began working with Studio 180.

John Ng: John is a first generation, Hong Kong-born Chinese-Canadian actor/playwright of Taishanese ancestry. He received his theatrical training at the University of Ottawa, in the city where he first landed and still resides. As a performer, he has worked with various companies across the country, including the NAC, GCTC, Factory, Tarragon, Passe Muraille, Modern Times, fu-Gen, Native Earth, YPT, Cahoots, Electric Company, Nightwood, Royal MTC, Vertigo, Gateway, and VACT. John can also be spotted in a recurring role as Mr. Chin in the CBC TV series Kim’s Convenience. Studio 180 audiences will remember John from our 180 READS presentation of The Chinese Lady by Lloyd Suh.

Her plays include: Sisters, Trident Moon, Little Pretty and The Exceptional, Sultans of the Street, Brothel # 9, Roshni, Letters to my Grandma, and Pyaasa.
