The Creative Team 💙
Adam Parrish has been writing plays since high school, when he and two friends wrote and produced Inherit the Mockingbird (which, as you might have guessed, was a satirical amalgamation of Inherit the Wind and To Kill a Mockingbird). He received a B.A. in Theater and English from Wesleyan University, where he studied playwriting under Maria Irene Fornes, and then interned at the Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati. Other plays include Abomination!, Everything Ends, Fusion, The Gospel According to Adam, Wife Swap, and Zeus Theory. Adam is also a professional bridge player (yes, such a thing exists) and has published several books and articles on bridge. He grew up in Cincinnati and currently lives in New York City. || www.adamparrish.us
