The annual Siminovitch Prize, worth $100,000 over three years, celebrates a director, playwright, or designer whose work is transformative and influential. The other shortlisted playwrights are Colleen Murphy, Hannah Moscovitch, and Olivier Choinière. The 2014 prize will be awarded on October 20 at Hart House Theatre in Toronto.

Bouchard’s latest play, Christina, the Girl King, is currently on stage at the Stratford Festival, and his previous play, Tom at the Farm, won last year’s Lambda Literary Award for LGBTQ Drama.
