Lindsay Joy (Playwright) was born and bred on the mean streets of rural New Hampshire and has since become a Brooklyn transplant. She's a proud member of the Beehive Collective, and the Amoralists Wright Club. Most recently, she served as Co-Artistic Director to the award-winning LabRats Theater Company. The Rats' production of her full-length play, The Rise and Fall of a Teenage Cyberqueen, garnered two NYIT Awards, including Outstanding Premiere Production of a Play and Outstanding Director for Padraic Lillis. Mr. Lillis commissioned her to helm the first College Collaboration project of the Farm Theater. The resulting play, In the Event of My Death, was produced at Ashland University, Centre College and Clark University and will make it's New York premiere this coming summer with Stable Cable Lab Company. Her short play, Clinch, was a part of Vertigo Theater Company's Bareknuckle at Gleason's Gym in Brooklyn alongside pieces by Pia Zankel and Lucy Thurber. Her play, The Unearthing, was a part of the newTACTics festival in the summer of 2012 and was presented in the Ground Up New Works Festival the winter of that same year. Her short pieces have been seen all over the country—from the Bowery Poetry Club to the Actors Theater of Louisville. In 2001, Lindsay won the award for best short play at the Kennedy Center’s American College Theater Festival for her piece Life, Love and a 7-11.
