HELLO! <3

 

I am a NJ/NYC based playwright who is interested in technology, navigating the world as a woman, and how being a woman and technology intersect. Sometimes I write about these things together, sometimes separate.

I try to write as if my plays are my livejournal from 2001 – full of sappy lyrics, angst, unfiltered emotions and confusion, but also paired with the things I know now. I also like to remind myself often that theater is like a dream and the stage is our eyelids. The lights go down and we simply blink, and suddenly unrealities of our dreams are there before our very eyes. 

My favorite musicians are Joanna Newsom and Björk, and my favorite filmmaker is Miyazaki Hayao. Asking me about my favorite playwrights and plays may take a much longer response, but I hope to have that conversation with you someday. 

Oh and I have five bunnies: Bonnie, Luna, Misty, Gussy and Olivia, and a one-eyed cat that I affectionately call Little Man.

I received my BFA from Eugene Lang, The New School for Liberal Arts, in 2012, with a concentration in Writing.

In 2018, I received my Playwriting MFA from Augsburg University.

Thank you so much for visiting my page – I hope we can someday meet, and chat, and make something together.

with warmth,

Allyson
