Bernard Weinraub

Bernard Weinraub's play Fall (2018) was produced at the Huntington. He grew up in New York, attended City College, served in the Army for two years and began working at The New York Times as an office boy. He was soon promoted to the reporting staff, and went overseas as a foreign correspondent covering the Vietnam War, India, and London. In the 1980s, he moved to the Washington Bureau of The New York Times, covering such presidential campaigns as Walter F. Mondale and Jesse Jackson. He also covered the White House – the final years of the Reagan Administration and the first two years of George H.W. Bush. In the late 1980s he moved to Los Angeles to cover the movie business. Theatre and playwrighting has been a fantasy since his teen years. His play The Accomplices was produced in 2007 at The New Group in New York and it was nominated for a Drama Desk Award. The play was also produced in Los Angeles at The Fountain Theatre and Odyssey Theatre, as well as in Coral Gables and Israel. His second play, Above the Fold, starring Taraji P. Henson, was produced in 2014 at the Pasadena Playhouse. A workshop of his play, Fall, starred Christine Lahti, and was staged by New York Stage and Film at Vassar College. Another workshop of the play was held at Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles with Hilary Swank.
