Gwen Flager

Playwright

Gwen Flager is a storyteller, who grew up in Louisiana and Alabama.  Her stories have a southern flavor and embrace strong, often cantankerous, women of this region.  Waiting To Be Mended and Shakin' the Blue Flamingo, full length plays, were produced in Houston, Texas, as well as her 10-minute plays, In Flight and Jornada del Muerto.  Her plays have additionally been produced and/or presented in reading festivals in California, Kansas and Louisiana.

Highlights

Women need to tell their diverse and non-traditional stories.  I tell the stories of women who maneuvered and managed the social stigma and prejudice of their sexual identities, flourished in their unconventional lives and shared their unflinching compassion for the broken.
