"(Greg Hatfield) has a knack for writing witty dialogue!" -- Pittsburgh New Works Festival, 2019
Greg Hatfield is a playwright, director and actor, fondly remembered for being part of the award-winning comedy troupe, Dr. Browndog’s Monkeytime, who appeared not only in clubs and supermarkets, but at Cincinnati Playhouse and Ensemble Theatre, as well as their own television programs (youtube.com/dickbeaks).
A member of the The Dramatists Guild, Greg's plays have been called "sophisticated" , "stylish and enchanting", "uniquely entertaining", and, thankfully, "funny". All of his plays can be found on the New Play Exchange.
2018 was a banner year for the lad, as his play, The Great Stalinski, was a finalist in the Pittsburgh New Works One Act Play Festival, which was presented by the company’s New Works Play Readings series. Greg was also a featured playwright at the Midwest Dramatists Center’s Theatrical Conference in Kansas City, Missouri and his play, Mundy Tuesday Friday, was selected as a finalist for Shakespeare in the Burg’s (Middleburg, Virginia) One-Act Festival.
In 2019, his play, The Ten Minute Play (with a Nice Picture of Jimmy Carter), was produced by The Drama Workshop's Home Brew Theater Festival in Cincinnati and Greg also directed Terri Foltz's Lessons for it.
A devoted student of Orson Welles, the Barrymores, and George S. Kaufman, Greg has also written a five-episode comedy television series, Alice Goodheart, which has proven to be very hard to sell. His blog, Ruminations and Ramblings, can be found at greghatfield.com.
