Named one of the most produced playwrights by the American Theatre Wing for the fifth year in a row, Kate Hamill has made a name for herself across the nation for her feminist, female-centered adaptations of classic novels. In Kate Hamill’s Little Women you get all the touchstones of the original novel, while adapting it for a 21st century audience, as Jo March and the rest of the March sisters grow up during the Civil War and strive to be brave, intelligent, and imaginative young women. “An ingenious compassion of Alcott’s novel that is by turns funny and painfully poignant, it touched me to the heart.” (The Wall Street Journal)

“Grand Horizons is a sweet, sweet delight. It’s extremely funny, while also asking a few tart questions about comedy itself.” (New York Magazine) This 2020 Tony Award nominee for Best Play depicts the surprisingly amicable, and hilarious, end of Nancy and Bill’s 50-year marriage, and the fallout it causes within their family, and their retirement community. “Playwright Bess Wohl nails the family genre beautifully which provides two hours of solid laughs, while quizzically pondering issues of love and marriage.” (Broadway World)
