Jennie Webb

Playwright

I'm an  an independent Los Angeles playwright and dramaturg, in residence at Rogue Machine (where my dark retail comedy "Yard Sale Signs" premiered) and Theatricum Botanicum (where I run workshops and created "Botanicum Seedlings: A Development Series for Playwrights"). My plays, including “Currency,” "Remodeling Plans," "Unclaimed Assets," "On Tuesday," "It's Not About Race" and "Buying a House," have been produced in LA (most recently at Inkwell Theater, Santa Monica Rep. and Green Light Productions), on stages across the country and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Other plays have been part of The Playwright Center's PlayLabs, Great Plains Theatre Conference, Little Black Dress INK Female Playwrights ONSTAGE, Virginia Avenue Project, National Winter Playwrights Retreat, 365 Women A Year, Playground-LA, EST/LA Winterfest & Launchpad, The Blank Theatre Living Room  Series, Road Theatre's Summer Playwrights Festival and Moving Arts MADlab; my work is published by Heinemann Press and ICWP. I'm currently a member of the Playwrights Union and EST/LA's Playwrights Unit. I was honored to receive a Women in Theatre Red Carpet Award and a Max K. Lerner Playwriting Fellowship. A #genderparity activist and supporter of new plays and playwrights (especially women playwrights!), I'm also co-founder of the Los Angeles Female Playwrights Initiative (LA FPI).
