Playwright

 

D.W. Gregory’s plays frequently explore political issues through a personal lens and with a comedic twist. The New York Times called her “a playwright with a talent to enlighten and provoke” for her most produced work, RADIUM GIRLS (Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey), about the famous case of industrial poisoning. Other plays include MEMOIRS OF A FORGOTTEN MAN, which received a National New Play Network rolling world premiere (Contemporary American Theater Festival, Shadowland Stages, New Jersey Rep); MOLUMBY’S MILLION (Iron Age Theatre), nominated for a Barrymore Award by Philadelphia Theatre Alliance; THE GOOD DAUGHTER and OCTOBER 1962 (New Jersey Rep); and a new musical comedy, THE YELLOW STOCKING PLAY, with composer Steven M. Alper and lyricist Sarah Knapp. She is also a two-time finalist for the Heideman Award at Actor’s Theater of Louisville, where her comedy SO TELL ME ABOUT THIS GUY was produced on a bill of short works. Gregory writes for youth theatre and makes occasional appearances as a teaching artist. SALVATION ROAD was the winner of the American Alliance for Theatre in Education’s Playwrights in Our Schools Award and developed through New York University’s New Plays for Young Audiences program. For two years in a row, Dramatics Magazine listed RADIUM GIRLS among the 10 Most Produced Plays in American High School Theatre. More information at www.dwgregory.com
