Tiffany Antone



Tiffany is a playwright, educator, and theatre-maker whose plays have been read and/or performed in Los Angeles, New York, D.C., and Minneapolis.  Her play, Cricket Woman Mother Earth (or) A Nasty Comeuppance, (a past O’Neil finalist) recently enjoyed a workshop at The Boston Court as part of their 2017 New Play Festival. Her plays Ana and the Closet and Twigs and Bone were both Jerome Finalists.  Twigs and Bone was also a Great Plains Theatre Conference selection in 2014 and received a developmental production with Acadiana Reportory Theatre in 2015.


Tiffany’s play The Good Book is available through Samuel French.  Her play In the Company of Jane Doe has won numerous awards and received its first NY production in 2012 with CAKE Productions.  Tiffany was a 2008 Hawthornden Fellow and a 2009 Sherwood Award Finalist with CTG, and was awarded the 2012 Bucky Award for Outstanding Literary Artist.


As a theatremaker and producer, Tiffany has produced new play festivals and initiated several theatre as social action initiatives through her companies Little Black Dress INK (a female playwright producing organization) and Protest Plays Project, for which she’s currently facilitating an inter-collegiate new play exchange titled Heal the Divide on Campus.


As an educator, Tiffany has taught a variety of introductory and advanced theatre classes for a number of colleges and universities.  She has also had the pleasure of working as a guest director for institutes of higher ed, and cherishes every opportunity to work with emerging artists.


Tiffany holds her MFA in Playwriting from UCLA, and currently lives/teaches in Iowa where she writes for stage and screen.  She is a member of The Dramatists Guild, The Playwright’s Center, Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas, and The Los Angeles Female Playwrights Initiative (for whom she is also a contributing blogger).


Although she has very little free time, Tiffany usually uses any spare moments she can find to play with her curious toddler, wait on her feline overlords, or creatively scheme up new ways to ways to stretch and grow her theatrical resume.
