We are so happy to announce that we have developed a new Playwright Residency program intended to provide an artistic home for innovative playwrights. Our first Residencies will be held by artists who have already proven they fit that bill. We think you'll recognize their names.
Please join us in welcoming our 2015 Resident Playwrights:
W.M. Akers is a native of Nashville, Tennessee who speaks, to his great disappointment, without an accent. In 2010 he graduated from NYU’s dramatic writing program, where he wrote four good plays, two bad ones, and received the John Golden Playwriting Prize In Excellence in recognition of his body of work, which was found to be much nicer than his actual body.
In 2011, Sanguine Productions mounted a thrilling version of his play, Cary’s Chain Store Massacre, and in 2012, Squeaky Bicycle did the same with Pop Dies In Vegas. They repeated the trick in 2014, with Tales of Love & Lasers. When not writing plays, he makes a living impersonating a journalist, writing for Deadspin, Vice, and elsewhere.
Dylan Lamb is a Minneapolis-born playwright and actor. He is a recipient of the Chair's Award of Excellence in Dramatic Writing from New York University. He has been a member of Fresh Ground Pepper's PlayGroup, and has written for Warner Brothers Television in Burbank, California as part of its Creative Lab.
Previous Squeaky Bicycle collaborations include his short play "Funeral Game", workshops of his full length plays Private School and There Is No Isabelle, and their full production of his Southern Gothic Atrocity Alligator Summer ("Best Bet Off-Broadway" -Theater Is Easy). His new play, Ten Ways On A Gun, will make its World Premiere with Squeaky Bicycle in October 2015.
We’re so thrilled to be working again with both of these talented artists, and can’t wait to help bring their newest projects to life!
