Casey and Adam by Maggie Rose
A finalist in the 2014 Short+Sweet Theatre Festival in Sydney, Australia Casey & Adam makes it’s New York debut as part of the 2015 New York New Works Theatre Festival. A Los Angeles native Playwright Maggie Rose graduated UCLA with a BA in Playwriting and a minor in Political Science. She was the Class of 2012 Valedictorian and is famed for giving a very long speech where she accidently raises the roof. (Yes, this is a true story and something that can be done by accident.) Her work has been awarded the George Burns and Gracie Allen Scholarship and Fellowship in Comedy, the George Savage Award in Playwriting, and the Marianne Murphy Women in Philanthropy Playwriting Award as part of the Marianne Murphy Play Reading series in Los Angeles. She is a member of SAG-AFTRA, a mentor with the Young Storytellers Foundation, and has worked in film/television for several years at Warner Bros, Punch Productions, and most recently on CBS’s The Good Wife.
