She is a Toronto Theatre Critics’ Award winner, three-time Dora Award winner and ten-time Dora nominee in both performance and writing, referred to as “the excellent Maev Beaty” by the New York Times. Her film debut (Mouthpiece) was a Special Presentations Opening Film at 2019 TIFF.
“Maev Beaty confirms in this role the long-standing suspicion that she is the classical comedienne of her generation, wittily and charmingly in command of everything she says and does.”
“The excellent Maev Beaty”
