Werner Trieschmann

Werner Trieschmann has a BA in English from Hendrix College, an MFA in Creative Writing (Playwriting) from Boston University and a Twitter account (wernertplays) that a responsible person should take away from him so he can see what is going on in the real world. His plays are published by Stage Partners, Original Works Publishing, Playscripts, and Dramatic Publishing Company. His one-act comedies have been produced all over the U.S. and in various countries around the world including Japan, Romania, New Zealand and Ireland. His play, Lawn Dart, won first prize in the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans New Play Competition. He was writer and director for the world premiere production of Mozart: Revealed and Schubert: Revealed with the Fort Wayne Philharmonic in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  He was the first playwright to receive the Porter Prize, an Arkansas literary award recognizing outstanding achievement by an Arkansas writer. He lives in Little Rock, Arkansas with his wife and two boys, who are probably eating something right now. He teaches theater, film and creative writing at a local college and, yes, he’ll get off Twitter in like a second, OK?
