Dan Dietz's new play, American Misfit, is receiving its world premiere production, directed by Michael Michetti at The Theatre @ Boston Court (April 4 - May 12, 2013).
In addition to his work as a playwright, Dan is currently a writer for the CBS drama, Person of Interest. We are pleased that, through the Edgerton Guest Artist Program, Oxy students can benefit from both aspects of Dan's career: in the workshop described here and in a post-show discussion on April 12, following the final preview of American Misfit.
Dan Dietz’s plays include tempOdyssey, Tilt Angel, American Misfit, The Sandreckoner, Clementine in the Lower Nine and Home Below Zero. His work has been commissioned, developed and presented at such venues as Actors Theatre of Louisville, the Guthrie Theater, the Public Theater, the Kennedy Center, Curious Theatre, NJ Rep, Salvage Vanguard Theater, Studio Theatre, the Playwrights’ Center, and Tiyatro-Z (Istanbul, Turkey).
