Robert Hamilton

Originally from New Brunswick, and a former Correctional Officer of eighteen years, Robert is a past Writer Resident at the Canadian Film Centre, and twice Fellow at Praxis. His ten-minute play, Boyfish was recently part of the Newmarket National 10-minute play festival. Robert is currently developing his play OUR STORY, based on his soon-to-be-published memoir about the Vancouver Aids Crisis during the 80s and 90s, which he workshopped in PTC’s 10-day residency program Wrightspace. He is also excited about possibly producing his one-act play Next, based on his experiences in the gay dating scene.
