Brad Bolchunos


The mishaps and miracles of communication fascinate Brad Bolchunos, whose work ranges from the full-length psychological drama Spellbinders and the transcendental noir Unmediated to the short comedy Death Wears Fishnets, produced in Los Angeles in 2014. A company member of Northwest Theatre Workshop in Portland, Oregon, he also has served on the leadership team of PDX Playwrights since 2010.  He regularly facilitates its twice-monthly readings. He has presented scripts in Portland's Fertile Ground Festival of New Work for 10 consecutive years. A short play he wrote about living in quarantine is slated for publication in a Smith & Kraus anthology in 2020. A former newspaper reporter and humor columnist, he is honored to be a member of the Dramatists Guild of America.


Brad Bolchunos [is] a playwright whose short works have been consistent standouts in Fertile Ground showcases for years now. This guy’s humor is wry and sly, and he has a special way of making the mundane suspenseful and strange. Now, in Spellbinders, he gets a whole show to tackle the haunted, hypnotic life of the Theremin’s inventor? Do not pinch me or I’ll wake.
