About the Playwright

Stacks Image 28963
Sandra Perlman is an award-winning playwright with productions from Cleveland to Kashmir. Her plays are dramatic and funny, tragic, sometimes historically inspired and always original. They may explore contemporary life (SWANN) or include a new look at an old Greek tragedy (JOCASTA), Shakespeare's KING LEAR (LUNACY), the sacrifice of a real family in Ohio during WWI (DEAR MOTHER & ALL) or the impact of the May 4th shootings on the campus of Kent State during anti-war demonstrations in 1970 (NIGHTWALKING).

Sandra is the recipient of three Ohio Arts Council fellowships in playwriting. She was nominated for the American Theatre Critics Association’s M. Elizabeth Osborn Award for Emerging Playwright and has been published by Dramatic Publishing, Smith & Kraus and the Middle Tennessee University State Press. Two of her plays have been semi-finalists for the Eugene O’Neill.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Perlman lives in Kent, Ohio with her artist husband, Henry Halem. They have one daughter, Jessica.

“I love being a playwright and working with a family of creative people. Scripts come alive with the gifts of this team – add an audience and stir for a fabulous night of live theatre.”
