Better Know The Writers!

 

We're proud to introduce the team of scribes whose deft hands brought life to the pages of our script:

 

Donald Chang is an idiot who lives off his parents’ hard work in order to goof off and tell stories.  Most of the time, they’re stories he’s stolen from others, but on rare occasions he tells his own.  He lives in what is considered a studio in New York, in that it is one room, and not that art is created there.  He loves reading and has low self-esteem.

 

Chris Myers is an New York born and based artist, the recipient of a 2014 Obie Award for his performance in Soho Rep's An Octoroon. Chris received a B.F.A. from The Juilliard School.  In 2010 he co-founded the Special Sauce Company, which works to make ensemble based site-specific theater free of charge. As a teacher, he works in the juvenile corrections system (with Drama Club NYC), and recently accepted his fist faculty position at the Harlem School for the Arts.  Having written and self-produced his first short, "Post-Emma" in 2014, he is currently expanding into writing for film, theater, and web, including his upcoming series "Guap".  Chris occasionally moonlights as a DJ. http://chrismyersinc.com

 

Alex Riad is a playwright originally from the San Francisco Bay Area and currently a resident of Washington Heights in NYC, making him an avid A-Train rider (and the 1 Train after 11pm).  His work has been read, workshopped, and produced in New York City, Upstate New York, California, and England.  Some of his full productions in New York include If  You Ever Come by Here (Essential Theatre Group), When You Go (Essential Theatre Group)and Standbys (Cabrini Repertory Theatre). He has also had readings at the Cherry Lane Theater and Labyrinth Theater Company’s Bank Street Theater, most notably a three night reading series at Bank Street made up of five of his plays entitled, A Few Plays by Alex Riad.  Alex is a member of Indie Theater Now, an online theatre publication where you can find his work as well as other plays by writers he’s proud to be published alongside.

 

Allison Zajac-Batell is an actress, playwright, poet and activist based out of NYC. Her work has been produced by Ruddy Productions, The Shelter, Vertigo and the Heartbeat Ensemble. Her most recent play "World Without End" was produced as part of a festival at Fair Folks & a Goat this past August.
