Dainty Cadaver Playwright Profiles: LEAH NANAKO WINKLER (Team C)

This week, we're running a series of profiles of the playwrights for Piper McKenzie's Dainty Cadaver 2012, in which they fill in the blanks in a number of outlandish and unhelpful statements we have provided.

Leah Nanako Winkler is a playwright and founding member of Everywhere Theatre Group. Plays include Happy Dance Dance Princess Show (The Brick), Formula Play (HERE), The Internet (IAP), and, co-written with Teddy Nicholas: A Pale Horse (short form and the Ontological), DEAD PEOPLE (3LD), Magic Futurebox (writer for FORTH arranged by Tommy Smith), and most recently Flying Snakes @ Ars Nova Ant Fest and The Brick. She’s also presented work at Ensemble Studio Theater, little theater @ Dixon Place, Wings Theater and venues in Philly, Ft.Lauderdale Indianapolis and Washington, DC. Terra Nova Collective Groundbreakrs alum, current member of youngblood.

  1. The playwright whose work I’d most like to continue in my own words is ANYONE because YAY.
  2. I think that theater in this country needs more EXPERIMENTATION/TRUST and less COMPLACENCY.

  3. If I could steal one character from another play and put them in my own play, it would be MUFASA from THE STAGE ADAPTATION OF THE LION KING because LIONS.

  4. Some would describe me as the bastard love child of SOME FAMOUS AVANT GARDE PLAYWRIGHT and A TRASHY TV SHOW LIKE THE BACHELORETTE.

  5. At times I HANG at MCDONALDS between REHEARSALS enforcing SOCIAL bathysphere PROVING collateral DAMAGE for MYSELF and also CUSTOMERS in case of DEALING dandelions SEEDS for profit.

  6. HOPE Dainty Cadaver WINS.

  7. The one thing I think it’s important for audiences to know about me is ILOVEYOU.
