Danielle Mohlman


Danielle Mohlman (she/they) is a nationally produced playwright based in the Los Angeles suburbs. Her adaptation of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was enthusiastically embraced by sold out audiences at Book-It Repertory Theatre last season. While not their exclusive focus, Danielle does gravitate toward classic stories, turning them on their heads for a modern audience. Her adaptation of Frankenstein puts Mary Shelley and Mary Wollstonecraft at the center of the narrative and her play Dust uses the Peter Pan story as a framework to interrogate gender-based violence.

Danielle is the Artistic Producer of Literary Management at Dacha Theatre, where she leads the company’s Literary Committee and collaborates on season planning. Danielle is also a thought partner at The Trust, where they are currently writing a new play about gymnastics and violence, inspired loosely by ancient Greek storytelling and with support from the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture.
