Natalie Osborne

Lyricist Playwright

My name is Natalie Osborne, and I've always been drawn to storytelling. I started turning those stories into plays when I was about fourteen, and have been hooked on playwriting ever since. For now, one of the main focuses in my work is creating heroic female characters and feminist queer friendly fairytales, because really, it is so hard to find a good story where girls get to slay the Dragon and rescue the Princess! Of course, this goal has lead to a million lines of inquiry, including, what does it really mean to be a heroine? The pieces in my portfolio are not conclusions, but rather explorations, works in progress which allow me to examine the thoughts that keep me up at night.
