Meet the playwright for ALABASTER by Audrey Cefaly, now presented by Shrewd as part of her record-breaking NNPN rolling world premiere.
A message from Audrey
Rudy has assembled an exquisite cast of actors. The depth and range of these women is staggering. They have mined every ounce of humor and light from this play, and compelled me to recalibrate the expansiveness of my characters. It really is extraordinary.
Audrey Cefaly's plays include The Gulf (Edgerton, Lammy, Charles MacArthur Nominee), Alabaster (NNPN Record-Breaking RWP, Kilroys, Calicchio Prize), Maytag Virgin, The Last Wide Open, The Story of Walter, Fin & Euba, Tell Me Something Good, The Believers, and Love is a Blue Tick Hound. Cefaly is a member of the Playwrights' Arena cohort at Arena Stage and a Dramatist Guild Foundation Traveling Master. She is published by Samuel French, Smith & Kraus, and Applause Books. Cefaly has developed plays with NNPN, Everyman Theatre, Signature Theatre, Vermont Stage, 16th Street Theater, Capital Stage, Cincinnati Playhouse, About Face, Florida Rep, Kitchen Dog Theatre, Circle Theatre, Serenbe Playhouse, Aurora Theatre, Theater Alliance, Quotidian Theatre Company, Contemporary American Theater Festival, and University of Alabama at Birmingham. audreycefaly.com
