C.J. Ehrlich C.J. Ehrlich’s award-winning plays have enjoyed over 150 productions and staged readings in 27 US states and internationally, in exotic locales such as Austin, Boston, Brooklyn, Chicago, Louisville, Milwaukee, Manhattan, Kealakekua, Valdez Alaska, Kitchener Ontario, Chennai (India), Liverpool, Wogonga (Australia) and alongside the Panama Canal. (On the wish list, Djibouti, Ypsilanti, and Pyong Yang -- coming tantalizingly close with Seoul, South Korea.)

Producing partners include the Samuel French Off-Off-Broadway Fest, Rover Dramawerks, Rising Sun Performance Company, 4C Theatre, SourceDC, Little Fish (Los Angeles), the Boston Theatre Marathon, JWTLA, Theatre Ariel, Heartland Theatre, and the Last Frontier Conference. Recognitions include Charles Getchell finalist, Heideman Award finalists, SETC state winner in Virginia, and many Audience Choice and Best of Fest awards.

Other pursuits include travel, book editing, theatre administration, actorating, instructing impressionable youth in the fine art of the spit take, smashing computers for a paycheck, driving ambulances, appreciating the nuances of wet collodion on silver, moving from one place to another and back again, kibbitzing, kvetching and kvelling, and, perhaps closest to her heart, mentoring and hectoring.

C.J. currently resides in several parts of the northeast under various assumed identities. Fortunately, most of those files have been sealed. Enough said?
