Nicolas was honoured to receive the 2013 Governor-General’s Award for Drama from the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada at Rideau Hall.
In a ceremony in Toronto today, Nicolas was announced as the winner of the 2013 Governor-General’s Award for Drama.
Chosen by a peer assessment committee appointed by the Canada Council, the 2013 jury had this to say about their selection:
Nicolas Billon’s Fault Lines takes a unique and dramatic look at climate change. Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands inspire the playwright’s provocative, theatrical triptych. Urbane and sophisticated strategies of monologue are honed to a laser probe into the interiors of contemporary consciousness.
