Along with Megan Riedl, Bjorn re-wrote this piece into what became Travels with My Black Dog, also co-directing the production for its first tour in January 2017.
Bjorn acted in Tripwire’s first production – The Let Down Reflex – and was nominated for Best Male Actor at the 2106 Kyuneton One Act Play Festival.
