Three Game-changing Playwrights

Three game-changing playwrights you may not have heard of but probably want to know:


“Young Jean Lee is, hands down, the most adventurous downtown playwright of her generation.” – The New York Times


“No playwright feels more current than Sheila Callaghan… The ultra-cool provocateur plays a cat-and-mouse game… [with] heady themes [and] cool tone… Roadkill Confidential isn’t just arid intellectualism. Callaghan has a sick sense of wit … and a sly fondness for big action movie plots… the hip theatergoer shouldn’t miss this cool work.” -New York Metro Mix


“Ruth Margraff is shaping the future of American theatre…a warrior riding the vanguard of New Wave opera…She travels everywhere, like an electrifying idea…” – The Austin Chronicle

— Neeley Gossett

Neeley Gossett is a playwright whose works have previously received productions and readings at Manhattan Repertory Theatre, The Coastal Empire New Play Festival, The Great Plains Theatre Conference, Mill Mountain Theater, Riverside Theatre, Studio Roanoke, The Ethel Woolson Lab, One Minute Play Festival Atlanta with Actor’s Express, and Big Dawg Theater, and she is published by YouthPLAYS. Neeley is a Kendeda Award finalist and will receive play readings at The Alliance Theatre and Lark Play Development next year. She holds an MFA from The Playwright’s Lab at Hollins University, and MA in English from The University of North Carolina Wilmington.
