Sheila Cowley


Sheila Cowley is a playwright and audio producer based in St. Petersburg FL.


Her plays embrace many artforms, creating theatre that celebrates voice, movement, sound and visual art. It's theatre that asks big questions - about gender roles and family, and tiny daily acts of heroism.


Her plays range from Flying, about what happens after women fly military planes in WWII, to The Burlesque Astronomy Play, exploring femininity with dance, abstract art and onstage science experiments. Her work has been produced around the U.S and in London, South Korea, Sydney and Dubai.


She's currently collaborating with actors, dancers and visual artists on works involving science, gender, gravity and border walls.


The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance named her the city's Literary Muse 2018.
