Vita

Here’s my basic bio: (scroll down for my vita)

Photo by Nile Hawver/Nile Scott Shots

Patrick Gabridge’s full-length plays include DriftLab Rats, Flight, Distant Neighbors, Fire on Earth, Constant State of Panic, Blinders, and Reading the Mind of God, and have been staged by theatres across the country. He’s been a Playwriting Fellow with the Huntington Theatre Company and with New Rep. Recent commissions include plays and musicals for In Good Company, The Bostonian Society, Central Square Theatre, and Tumblehome Learning. His short plays are published by Playscripts, Brooklyn Publishers, Heuer, Smith & Kraus, and YouthPlays, and have received more than 1,000 productions from theatres and schools around the world.

He’s also the author of three novels, Steering to Freedom, Tornado Siren and Moving (a life in boxes). His work for radio has been broadcast and produced by NPR, Shoestring Radio Theatre, Playing on Air, and Icebox Radio Theatre.

Patrick has a habit of starting things: he helped start Boston’s Rhombus Playwrights writers’ group, the Chameleon Stage theatre company in Denver, the Bare Bones Theatre company in New York, the publication Market InSight… for Playwrights, and the on-line Playwrights’ Submission Binge. He’s also the New England Regional Rep for the Dramatists Guild, a member of StageSource, and a board member of the Theatre Community Benevolent Fund. He is the co-founder and current coordinator of the New England New Play Alliance.

You can read more about Patrick’s work on his website, www.gabridge.com, or on his blog, The Writing Life x3.

Patrick has a passion for history and a lifelong love of science and scientists. In his spare time, he likes to farm and fix up old houses.
