Huntington Announces New Playwriting Fellows

by:  Todd Williams at 02/04/2010

The Huntington announces the 2010 class of Huntington Playwriting Fellows: Patrick Gabridge, MJ Kaufman, and Ryan Landry. This artistically diverse group of writers will be in residence at the theatre for two years. 

Through the Huntington Playwriting Fellows program, the Huntington fosters the talents of local playwrights at all stages of their careers, from emerging talents to established professionals, and encourages and facilitates conversations among Boston's playwriting community. Fellows are awarded two-year residencies during which they are provided a modest grant, participate in a bi-weekly writers' collective, and benefit from access to the artistic staff and to the resources of the Huntington. The three 2010 Fellows were selected from among 60 applicants. The Huntington Playwriting Fellows program is supported by the Stanford Calderwood Fund for New American Plays and the Harry Kondoleon Playwriting Fund.

Patrick Gabridge is the author of numerous plays including Constant State of PanicPieces of WhiteyBlinders, and Reading the Mind of God. His work has been staged in theatres across the country. His first novel, Tornado Siren, was published in 2006. He is the co-founder of Boston's Rhombus Playwrights' group, the Chameleon Stage theatre company in Denver, the publication Market InSight... for Playwrights, and the online Playwrights' Submission Binge. His plays are published by Playscripts, Brooklyn Publishers, Heuer, Smith & Kraus, and Original Works Publishers. He is a member of the Dramatists Guild, on the board of StageSource, the Greater Boston theatre alliance, and a resident of Brookline, MA. The Denver Post called Blinders, "Bitingly clever. A challenging, imaginative piece."

MJ Kaufman's plays include House and Junction and A Live Dress. He has received awards and commissions from the San Francisco Playwrights' Foundation, the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, Stark Raving Theater, and Young Playwrights Inc. Originally from Portland, OR, Kaufman attended Wesleyan University where she studied playwriting with Marsha Norman and Catherine Filloux. He has also choreographed four dances and created several performance pieces in non-traditional spaces including a stairwell and an elevator. He is a resident of Jamaica Plain, MA.

Ryan Landry is Ryan Landry, a working writer, director, and performer for over thirty years. His Boston-based troupe the Gold Dust Orphans produces satirical "mash-ups" of pop culture - comedic, dramatic, or musical - in both Provincetown and Boston. Past productions include Willy Wanker and the Hershey HighwayAll About Christmas EveDeath of a SalesladyMedeaA T-Stop Named DenialChristmas on the Pole, and Valet of the Dolls. He is currently in rehearsal for Phantom of the Oprah , writing his next musical,Peter Pansy, and at work on a surrealist adaptation of Lorca's The House of Bernarda Alba. He is a resident of Dorchester, MA. The Boston Globe extols, "The brilliance of playwright/performer Ryan Landry lies in his unique ability to marry outrageous parody with the most serious topics."

"The Huntington is committed to being a well-rounded company that produces the best work by local, national, and International Artists," explains Director of New Work Lisa Timmel. "The Huntington Playwriting Fellows program allows us to create thriving working relationships with writers at all stages as they develop their work for production."

Past Huntington Playwriting Fellows are leaders of the local community whose plays have been produced on the Huntington's stages and throughout the country. They are:

· Class of 2003 - 2005: John Kuntz (Jasper Lake), Melinda Lopez (Sonia Flew), Ronan Noone (The AtheistBrendan), and Sinan Ünel (The Cry of the Reed)

· Class of 2005 - 2007: Lydia R. Diamond (Stick Fly), Rebekah Maggor (Shakespeare's Actresses in America), John Shea (The Hill), and Kate Snodgrass (The Glider)

· Class of 2007 - 2009: Kirsten Greenidge (The Luck of the Irish), Jacqui Parker (Jeanie Don't Sing No Mo'), Ken Urban (The Happy Sad), and Joyce Van Dyke (The Oil Thief).

"Participating in the Huntington Playwriting Fellows program through the writers' collective, company support, and Breaking Ground series will be the perfect opportunity to help me to achieve many of my goals," says Kaufman. "Sharing with other writers encourages me to try new devices and make daring formal and genre choices. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with the Huntington's artistic staff and previous Fellows over the coming years."



  1. This tournament slhuod be called The Boston University Invitational . lets get real here, NU does not have a remote chance this year. The huskies would need to come up HUGE offensively in order to get a chance. I'm taking about scoring 6 to 9 goals in favor of NU to compensate for the goals against teams like BU and BC. Every year there is a bit of hope come the second Monday in February for NU to bring that pot to Huntington Ave but not this year.
  2. Carl . you have a keen eye for the obvious. Indeed, Cronin may have had his faltus but I don't think he ever had underachieving teams due to him not knowing who to use where. NU is suffering on the coaching front and those presently behind the bench can only blame themselves. Their idea of personnel change is blowing things up from the bottom (3rd and 4th lines) . which is laughable.
  3. I've always been frustrated by the fact that the Huntington's "Breaking Ground" series of play readings has been scheduled in the past in March, one of the busiest months on the performance calendar, so that people like me who attend lots of events found it difficult to schedule many of the readings due to conflicts. So imagine how excited I was when this year's series was announced for Summer dates - perfect, I thought!Alas, no - one reading on a weekday afternoon(!), and others on weeknights at 7 - too early for me. Who ever heard of a 7 p.m. curtain? What about weekends? Or at least 7:30 or 8 p.m. starts? It's starting to seem like a plot to keep me away...[sigh] car insurance shelby in New York City
  4. The way that I see this is that the government is encairogung young people to go against their parents’ counsel. Did it ever occur to you, Jake, that there are many young people who abstain simply because their parents taught them that pre-marital sex is immoral? The government contradicts the parents’ counsel by saying, in effect, that premarital sex might not be the best choice, but it is ok if you protect yourself. Isn’t that the message? My children are raised, but I would resent any organization that went against my religious or personal moral beliefs behind my back by providing contraception to my children.Since when does the governmnent’s authority supercede a parent’s God-given right to raise a child according to core moral/rligious beliefs? business insurance mileage credit cards with
