Stephen Fischer

Playwright Lyricist Librettist

I began my career in London, where I co-wrote / co-directed “The Doom Duckers’ Ball” at The Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, and adapted/directed “Foam” by Peter Handke and Hans Magnus Enzensberger at The Institute of Contemporary Arts.

I then moved to L.A., where I directed my Delta Blues musical adaptation of Garcia Lorca’s “Yerma” at The Odyssey Theatre, wrote the book for "Heat Wave" for Berry Gordy and Suzanne dePasse, and wrote the book and co-wrote the lyrics for "Swan Songs" at the Cast Theatre. I also sold original screenplays to most of the major studios and TV pilots to CBS, NBC, and PBS.

I'm now living on a lake in North Carolina, developing a musical and writing plays.
