Alicia hails from the sunny, sleepy town of Boynton Beach, Florida. She came to Toronto for grad school, and she liked it so much she never left! She juggles her time between her three loves: performing for the stage and screen, writing, and as a vocal coach.
As playwright, her solo show How to Be Black was written and produced under York University’s MFA Acting program. Obsidian Theatre Company’s Playwrighting Unit was the incubator for her full length play: Articulation. Alicia worked on her first Theatre for Young Audiences play, Sweeter, with Cahoots Theatre Company’s HOT HOUSE Creator’s Unit. This past summer, she drafted a phycological thriller, Solve for X, as the Driftwood Theatre Group’s Playwright-in-Residence. “My mission is clear: to capture the beauty, complexity, and absurdity of the black experience, one play at a time.”
Sweeter will have a workshop and staged reading at Cahoots Theatre on February 26, 2019. For tickets: click here.
