Playwright, Dramaturg, Lyricist

Liv Wilson (they/she) is a creator based out of Washington, D.C. Their work as a playwright seeks to amplify meaningful, marginalized stories to enhance the local cultural environment through accessible art. Liv values the creation of bids for connection through ephemeral (and sometimes lyrical) "play" that centers societal subversion, nuanced spaces, and whispers of intimacy. She leads with curiosity in the creation of challenging worlds, electrifying crises, and enigmatic, queer people to better understand this performative world and herself.

 

Their play, FIND MY FRIENDS, will be showing at The Tank as a part of LIME FEST in August (directed by Melissa Lewyn). She also has a new musical in the works in collaboration with composer Déa Thatcher entitled GENDER CRISIS (AT A FRAT PARTY).

 

Liv will be the Assistant to the Artistic Director Melia Bensussen at the National Playwrights Conference at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center this summer. Liv is also the Script Supervisor for Rhiana Yazzie's The Other Children of the Sun, which will have a second workshop at the Kennedy Center in July.

Obligatory Blurb of Stuff

Their plays include the best of all possible worlds (Pipeline New Works Fellow, The Workshop Theatre), Gender Crisis (at a Frat Party), and Better Red Than Dead (The Tank, BSU, UTEP). Liv writes for Cadence's TV series, Bloodlines and was a lead writer for the inaugural Episodic Theatre Project BARDCORE (Under St. Marks Theatre).

 

Their work has also been developed and presented by Rorschach Theatre, Folger Theatre’s Works in Progress, Dramatic Question Theatre, National Theatre Institute at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center, and various universities across the country.

 

A passionate advocate for new work, they have dramaturgically supported countless new plays at O’Neill, Mosaic Theatre Company, The Tank, and The Kennedy Center. Liv has also worked as the Resident Dramaturg for Ford's Theatre and Cadence's Sitelines BLM series. 

 

Liv is the recipient of the Howard Scammon Prize for Drama and the Martin Jurow Theatre Arts Award for artistic excellence. They are currently pursuing a Masters in Social Work at Columbia University.
