Steve Vargo, Playwright
Steve Vargo is a graduate of the Theatre Production program at Humber College in Toronto, and works mainly as a Stage Manager and Lighting Designer, but he is always trying on new hats given the opportunity! Steve has been writing as a pastime most of his life, and decided to enter a 24-hour playwriting contest - which he didn’t win…and then the pandemic hit. But chin-up, you’re in luck! Thanks to Stories From Home, this is that very play - heavily edited and further developed - being performed for a real live audience! Can you even believe it? Steve hopes you Earthlings enjoy the show!!!
