Kalale Dalton-Lutale is a Black, queer playwright and performer originally from Tkaronto/Toronto. Her work, which embraces surrealism, mothers, loss and pop culture, always reveals, at its core, a curiosity about people.
Her current plays includes Pinky Swear (Geordie Productions, nominated for a Tom Hendry Award, directed by Mike Payette 2017), Crybaby (presented by Black Theatre Workshop and Playwrights Workshop Montreal, directed by Jesse Stong 2019), When We Were Young (Geordie Productions, Festival Reading, directed by Dean Fleming 2019), An Untitled Commission (Talisman, directed by Sophie Gee), and i am entitled to rest (New Words Festival 2019).
In May, Kalale will graduate from the National Theatre School of Canada. While there she worked with a selection of theatre practitioners, including dramaturges Mel Hague, Bob White and Andrea Romaldi.
