Lucy WangAbout this Playwright

Lucy Wang Is an award-winning, published and produced writer, in spite of the odds, the pressure and the insanity. Wang began her illustrious career as a bond trader on Wall Street because her parents often threatened and screamed, "If we knew you were going to be a starving artist, we could have left you in China!" When Wang (nicknamed the "Hemingway of Memos") lost her job because the Mayor of New York lost his, Wang decided it was finally time to pursue her deepest passion. Everyone thought she was crazy to "waste" her University of Chicago MBA. Luckily, her biting first play JUNK BONDS won an award from the Kennedy Center and a new nickname, "the female David Mamet." She has been writing steadily ever since, surprising audiences with her diverse array of voices and life experiences and collecting as many awards, accolades and new nicknames along the way. Wang's other awards include a grant from the Berrilla Kerr Foundation, James Thurber Fellowship, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation Honorary Fellow, Best New Play from the Katherine and Lee Chilcote Foundation, etc. Wang was also awarded a James Irvine Foundation Honorary Fellowship in 2007 for her work done during her second artistic residency at Djerassi.  Wang's plays have been produced all over and her voices span the gamut, from A to Z. In addition to plays, Wang has written screenplays, short stories, news articles, essays, and humorous creative nonfiction.  Visit Lucy's Author Page on Amazon.com!
