Chisa Hutchinson

Chisa has earned a B.A. in Dramatic Arts from Vassar College and an M.F.A. in Playwriting from NYU. She’s landed some pretty cool gigs since then, such as writing and performing with the New York NeoFuturists and being a Staff Writer for Blue Man Group. She is also a proud member of New Dramatists, a Humanitas New Voices Fellow and a Resident at Second Stage Theater in New York thanks to the generosity of the Tow Foundation. As Chisa tends to write plays about underrepresented folks that require a minimum of five actors, she doubts that you’ll see any of her plays on Broadway any time soon, but encourages you to support the intrepid companies that have presented her work, which include the Lark Play Development Center, City Parks’ Summerstage, the New York NeoFuturists, Partial Comfort, Mad Dog Productions, Atlantic Theater Company, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, New Dramatists, Rattlestick Theater, the Contemporary American Theater Festival, Midtown Direct Rep, Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey, Second Stage Theater, Forward Flux Theater, the Working Theater and FilmGym.
