Two Toronto directors are among the five finalists nominated for Canada’s biggest theatre prize.

The $100,000 Siminovitch Prize has named Ross Manson and Ravi Jain of Toronto – along with Edmonton’s Jonathan Christenson, Nadia Ross of Wakefield, Quebec and Christian Lapointe of Quebec City.

The number was increased to five this year from four – due to “the high quality of nominations.

Created in 2001 in honour of scientist Lou Siminovitch and his late wife Elinore – the prize recognizes a body of work in theatre direction, design and playwriting in three year cycles.

The prize will be awarded October 28th in Ottawa – at the National Arts Centre.

The winner chooses a protege – who receives $25,000 of the total prize money.
