Cherissa Richards • Playwright

Cherissa Richards is thrilled to be debuting her first play at MTYP! She would like to send a huge thank you to Carrie for inviting her on this journey. This has been an incredible, whirlwind learning experience and Cherissa is so excited to have had the chance to work with such an incredible team all along the journey! Here’s to many more! Cherissa’s year has been filled with theatre and movie making; from acting in shows at MTYP and Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, directing with Sarasvàti Theatre, Vancouver’s Bard on the Beach and a few Hallmark movies shot in between. You can catch Cherissa as Mayme in Winnipeg Jewish Theatre’s Intimate Apparel from February 2-10, and then she’s off to the Shaw Festival for the Apprentice Director program for their 2019 season.
