L.M. Feldman

L M Feldman is a queer, feminist playwright who writes theatrically adventurous, physically kinetic, intimate, inquisitive, ensemble-driven plays – usually about outsiders, often about searchers, always about the human connection. Plays includeA PEOPLE (Orbiter 3, Jewish Plays Project); THRIVE OR WHAT YOU WILL (Page 73 workshop, New Georges Audrey Residency); ANOTHER KIND OF SILENCE (Magic Theatre Virgin Play Festival, PlayPenn Conference, Playwrights Realm Fellowship, Sewannee Writers’ Conference); GRACE, OR THE ART OF CLIMBING (Denver Center, Art House Productions, Nice People Theatre, ATCA/Steinberg New Play Award Nomination, Barrymore Nomination); THE EGG-LAYERS (Jane Chambers Honorable Mention, New Georges/Barnard College commission); and AMANUENSIS, OR THE MILTONS (Georgetown University, Northwoods Ramah Theatre commission); as well as ensemble-devised works, including GUMSHOE (New Paradise Labs + Free Library of Philadelphia + Rosenbach Museum), WAR OF THE WORLDS: PHILADELPHIA (Swim Pony + Drexel University), AND IF YOU LOSE YOUR WAY, OR A FOOD ODYSSEY (The Invisible Dog, New York Innovative Theatre Award Nomination), and others; and a baker’s dozen of short plays.

A graduate of the Yale School of Drama and the New England Center for Circus Arts, L is also a deviser, a teacher (Bryn Mawr College, PlayPenn, Jefferson Medical School/Lantern Theatre), a New Georges Affiliated Artist, a Foundry mentor, and a performer & dramaturg of contemporary circus. She trains & coaches at the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts, and she teaches writing & dramaturgy to circus artists at Circadium and around the country. She performs theatrical solo & duo trapeze internationally.

L has lived in seven cities and is now based in Philadelphia – where she is an InterAct Core Playwright and a proud member of Orbiter 3 (Philly’s producing-playwrights collective). Her work can be found on NPX or at www.laurenfeldman.com.
