Moscovitch, Hannah

Hannah Moscovitch is a Canadian playwright who has risen to national prominence in the last few years. She has been dubbed “an indie sensation”  and “the wunderkind of Canadian theatre”.  
Hannah’s work has won multiple Dora Mavor Moore Awards and the Trillium Award, and she has been nominated for the Governor General’s Award, the Carol Bolt Award, the Toronto Arts Council Foundation Emerging Artist Award, the K.M Hunter Award, and the international Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.  
Hannah’s smash hit EAST OF BERLIN played to a sold-out run when it premiered at Tarragon Theatre in 2007. The premiere production has since been remounted twice, in 2009 and 2010 and gone on a national tour.
