crystal skillman

Crystal is a writer who creates darkly funny, high-concept work with heart and edge.

As a playwright she is a four time NYT Critics Pick, as well as an award-winner as a bookwriter for the musical Mary and Max (with composer Bobby Cronin), and co-creator/writer of the comic book Eat Fighter.

Featuring music and magic, her off-beat stories, populated with characters who feel "weird and different", are told through the lens of genre to expose the cracks of what it means to grow up in this weird, broken place called America. And explore what we can do about it as we try to connect to make the world a better place.

Upcoming: Pulp Vérité one-night-only virtual reading at Playwrights' Center March 3rd, 8 PM EST/7 PM CST. Part of the Ruth Easton Series. Register for your link HERE
