Rep. George Strus – A3 Artists Agency george.strus@a3artistsagency.com
My name is Ruth Tang (they/them). I’m a playwright and poet, raised in Singapore and currently based in New York City.

I am interested in experiments of form, small art, & propagandizing for a world that could be rather than the terrible world that is.

I’m a NYTW 2050 Fellow 2020/21, and a member of the Clubbed Thumb 20/21 Early Career Writers' Group.

My past work includes Bad Chinese (Samuel French Off-Off-Broadway Festival, dir. Peter Kuo) and Building A Character (Wild Rice Singapore, dir. Mei Ann Teo). MFA: The New School for Drama.
