- News Update: Kyle's play AFTER SCHOOL SPECIAL is being presented as part of La MaMa Experiments 18: Parts for Meryl Streep. The reading will take place on Monday, 6/25/18, at 7pm at La MaMa Galleria, 47 Great Jones Street. Check here for more info, including a link to reserve tickets.
Kyle is a writer living in Los Angeles. His work spans across media, including but not limited to theater, film, television, children's literature, and interactive experiences. He's worked as a writer and editor for Disney Publishing and Digital Media, freelanced in script coverage for Center Theatre Group, Theatre@Boston Court, and Sundance Theatre Lab, and provided dramaturgical support for various independent playwrights and screenwriters.
His screenplay WAR AND JIM was named finalist in the 2017 Arch & Bruce Brown Playwriting Competition. This is amusing because WAR AND JIM started as a play several years ago, but Kyle submitted a new screenplay adaptation because, well, they accepted screenplays. In a playwriting competition. Doesn't matter. Point is the script got to the finals of something.
OH! And his play YUCCA CORRIDOR was named finalist for the 2018 National Playwrights Conference at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center. The O'NEILL, y'all. He's quite pleased about that.
In other news, Kyle is developing an original pilot, PHYSIQUE!, and a short film, SFH, all while writing his first novel (no title yet). Lots to do!
Kyle's plays have been developed or performed by Great Plains Theatre Conference (2013 and 2017 PlayLabs playwright), The Lark, Theatricum Botanicum, Ensemble Studio Theatre/Los Angeles, Psychic Visions Theatre, Naked Angels Tuesdays@9 Los Angeles, and L.A.'s Homo-Centric, among other organizations.
He devised and produced two plays with his writing collective, Fell Swoop Playwrights. THE LAST TEMPTATION OF PAULA DEEN premiered at the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Festival, and THE MISS JULIE DREAM PROJECT premiered at the 2013 Hollywood Fringe and was remounted at Son of Semele Theater in Los Angeles in September of that year. His monologues were published in 2016's LGBTQ MONOLOGUES THAT ARE ACTUALLY FUNNY, edited by Alisha Gaddis. Kyle earned an MFA from Carnegie Mellon University a little while ago, and these days he's a member of The Dramatists Guild.
