Taylor Geu

Playwright

 

Taylor Geu’s first publication was a weekly comic book he passed around the playground in 4th grade. He learned general audiences were philistines. Geu’s short play Words into Darkness won a Scholastic Writing Award gold medal and his short story An Experiment with Shakespeare received the same organization’s American Voice Award and was published in The Best Teen Writing 2012. Most recently his one-act The Problem Play was selected for a reading at the regional level of the Kennedy Center College Theater Festival (he was the only undergraduate participant), and he was a finalist in Red Bull Theater’s Short New Play Festival and a finalist for the Primary Stages Einhorn School of Performing Arts Drills Program. Geu is a graduate of Kenyon College, where he majored in Film and wrote for a podcast called The Magical History of Knox County. He studied as an Advanced Playwright for a semester at the National Theatre Institute near Waterford, Connecticut and spent a summer at the Powerhouse Theater Training Program at Vassar College as a playwright. In the past year he has studied with Leah Nanako Winkler and Kate Moira Ryan at Primary Stages Einhorn School of Performing Arts. Geu currently resides in New York City, where he is working on multiple projects. He knows too much about cats.
