MICHAEL BAWTREE was born in Australia. He was raised and educated in Britain, and came to Canada in 1962. In his long and varied career he has been a playwright, director, journalist, educator and actor, and an initiator of many new and original artistic projects from British Columbia to Nova Scotia – where he now lives. His creations show the breadth of his interests: a children's book about Nova Scotia's hero Joe Howe, a play about the Russian revolution, a book on Music Theatre, CDs of 'Three Men In A Boat' and 'A Christmas Carol', and two volumes of his autobiography. Now, in 2021, he has published the book of his stage production, The Pegasus Bridge Show, with which he toured the U.K., raising funds for veterans.
