Melisa

 

I’m a New York-based playwright focused on formally groundbreaking, socially relevant, emotionally engaging work.

I’m currently working on: a play about gun control, a play about cooks that dominate a restaurant’s ‘back of the house’, a music theatre piece based on Mary Kay Letourneau, and assorted small projects.

I’m a member of New Dramatists and a NYFA Fellow in Playwriting/Screenwriting.  I was a MacDowell Colony fellow and a Women’s Project Lab member playwright.  I’ve been a Leah Ryan Prize finalist, a Jerome New York Fellowship finalist, and a Weissberger Award          nominee.
