Synopsis:

Ann-Marie MacDonald was born in West Germany and spent the first few years of her life on a Canadian air force station near Baden Baden. Her father was an officer in the RCAF and the family was posted numerous times. She attended one year at Carleton University, Ottawa, studying languages and Classics. She went to the National Theatre School of Canada in Montreal where she trained as an actor, graduating from the program in 1980. She moved to Toronto where she began an acting career. She soon became involved in creating original Canadian work in a number of contexts: collective creation, collaboration and solo writing. The work always combined theatrical innovation, politics and entertainment. She worked as an independent artist, with Nightwood Theatre and Theatre Passe Muraille as her principal theatre "homes." Her seminal works include the collective creationThis is For You, Anna, and the multi-episodicNancy Drew: Clue in the Fast Lane.Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)was MacDonald's first solo-authored work. She continued to work as an actor in theatres across the country and in many independent films, includingI've Heard the Mermaids Singing,Where the Spirit LivesandBetter Than Chocolate. As well, she guest-starred on numerous television series, most recentlyMade in Canada. MacDonald was last on stage in the spring of 2001 when she starred in a sold-out production ofGoodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)at the Bluma Appel Theatre in Toronto. Currently, MacDonald is host of the CBC seriesLife and Times. Her more recent work for theatre includes the playThe Arab's Mouth, the libretto for the chamber operaNigredo Hotel, the collectively createdThe Attic, The Pearls and Three Fine Girlsin which she also performed, and, most recently, the book and lyrics for the musical comedyAnything That Moves. MacDonald's work as an actor and writer has been honoured with a number of awards, including the Governor General's Award, the Commonwealth Writers' Prize, the Canadian Authors' Association Award, the Dartmouth Award, the Gemini Award, the Chalmers Award and the Dora Mavor Moore Award. Fall on Your Kneeswas MacDonald's first novel and is available from Vintage Canada. She lives in Toronto with her partner, her daughter and two dogs.
