It was love at first scene: the West Coast's innovative Theatre SKAM and Sean Dixon were a match made in heaven. AWOL offers up for the first time three of the fruits of their three-year-and-counting union.

In Aerwacol, a couple flees personal tragedy on a manual railroad car headed across the prairies, meeting odd characters along the way. Billy Nothin' is an existentialist cowboy play inwhich horse trainer Billy None loses the 'cowboy way' so entirely that his best friends don't even recognize him any more. And dystopian romance District of Centuries tells the story of a suburban type seeking his long-lost brother in a downtown housing project designed to crumble so fast that inhabitants come to believe they're hundreds of years old.

Sean Dixon is a playwright, novelist and actor. He co-founded the influential Winnipeg theatre collective primus, providing the narratives for their performances Dog Day, Alkoremmi and The Night Room. Three of his plays were collected in AWOL: Three Plays for Theatre SKAM (2002). Sean's first novel, The Girls Who Saw Everything, was named one of the Best Booksof 2007 by Quill & Quire. With his second novel, The Many Revenges of Kip Flynn (2011), he has been called 'the true inheritor of [Gwendolyn] MacEwen's mythopoeic legacy.' He is also the author of two books for young readers, The Feathered Cloak and The Winter Drey. He lives in Toronto with his wife, documentary filmmaker Katerina Cizek.
