Adam Grant Warren
Now based in Vancouver, Adam was born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada. He started writing professionally in his early twenties, as a radio columnist for the CBC Morning Show. In that time, he also became Newfoundland's youngest ever winner of both the Arts and Letters Award for Fiction, and the George Story Medal of Excellence in the Arts.
On the heels of that success, Adam moved west to study at Vancouver Film School. His films have since screened as official selections at festivals including California’s Newport Beach Film Festival, the National Screen Institute’s Online All-Star Reel, and the Vancouver International Film Festival – where his film Float took home the honours for Best Canadian Short in 2012. In 2016, Conocerlos (Get to Know Them) earned him his first BC Film Leo Award Nomination for Best Screenwriting.
As a performer, Adam is a frequent collaborator with Vancouver's All Bodies Dance Project. He has also appeared in stage productions including Frank Theatre’s All In, Real Wheels Theatre's landmark production of David Freeman's CREEPS, and Touchstone’s Kill Me Now — the latter two earning him Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards. Following development as part of the National Writers' Colony at Vancouver’s Playwrights’ Theatre Centre, his solo show, Last Train In, premiered at Victoria’s UNOFest, and went on to critical acclaim at Vancouver's 2017 rEvolver Theatre Festival. His latest show, Lights, won Touchstone Theatre’s 2019 Flying Start Playwrights Competition and will be making its world premiere at the Firehall Arts Centre in May of 2020.
