Rep. Lucy Powis – A3 Artists Agencylucy.powis@a3artistsagency.com

I write performance texts & poetry & make weird internet experiments out of Brooklyn, NY. (I also do freelance editorial work!)

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

I’m currently a member of the New Georges Jam, the Clubbed Thumb Early Career Writers' Group, and am a 2020/21 New York Theatre Workshop 2050 Fellow.

My past work includes FUTURE WIFE: Party in A Google Sheet (Corkscrew Festival 4.0), 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.
RIGHT NOW!

✨ June 17, 2 & 8pm ET: the Spreadsheet Party is BACK! pls RSVP for this house party/barn wedding/field of man-eating sunflowers!! ✨
