about me

Stereophonic premiered at Playwrights Horizons in October 2023, with music by Will Butler (from Arcade Fire) and is currently running at the Golden Theater on Broadway.  The play received the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award, the Outer Critics' Circle Award and the Drama League Award for Best Play. It was additionally nominated for 8 Drama Desk Awards, and a record-breaking 13 Tony Awards. The Stumble, recently excerpted in The Paris Review, is a commission from Lincoln Center Theatre. The Blind King (Parts I and II) was workshopped at the Sundance Theatre Lab and is currently in development at The Public. Together with Lila Neugebauer I am developing a musical based on the life of Brian Wilson for Universal.


I've also written a memoir entitled Lot Six which was published by HarperCollins. 


I'm the author of two play collections: Stunning and Other Plays and 1789/1978 (both from TCG.) A recipient of a Whiting Writers' Award, the Steinberg Playwright Award, and a Guggenheim Fellowship, I live in New York City.
