About our presenter for May 17th

Bryan Willis serves as playwright-in-residence for the Northwest Playwrights Alliance at Seattle Repertory Theatre and Capital Playhouse in Olympia, WA. He’s currently working on two commissioned scripts, including “Seven Ways to Get There,” which received a workshop and reading at Seattle Rep last fall. His most recent play (adaptation of Jim Lynch’s novel, “Border Songs”) was a critical and box office hit at Book-It Repertory Theatre in Seattle. Bryan’s full-length work-in-progress, “Bootleg,” received an extended workshop with Seattle Repertory Theatre, directed by Jerry Manning. Bryan’s plays have appeared throughout the U.K., Israel, Japan, U.S. and Canada, including A Contemporary Theater /FringeACT, New York Theater Workshop, Milwaukee Rep, Unseam’d Shakespeare Co. and Riverside Studios in London. His work has also been featured on NPR and BBC Radio (commission for Sophie). Bryan is the proud recipient of a Theater Fellowship from Artist Trust and has worked in the literary departments of many theaters, including Lincoln Center (NYU’s Playwright-in-Residence) and Playwrights Horizons. He recently completed a tour of the U.S. as a respondent for the Kennedy Center/American College Theater Festival’s National Selection Team. Bryan lives in Olympia with his son, Zach.
