Kirsten Greenidge is a playwright from Boston, Massachusetts. She attended Wesleyan University as a United States History Major, where she studied playwrighting. At the University of Iowa, Kirsten developed her voice. More often than not, Kirsten’s work explores the intersections of race, class, and gender and seeks to place stories and language that are inherently theatrical on the American stage. She seeks to create more multidimensional roles for underrepresented actors of color, more roles for women, and more plays that challenge mainstream audiences and provoke change. Currently, Kirsten is playwright-in-residence at Company One Theatre in Boston, Massachusetts, as part of the Mellon Foundation’s National Playwright Residency Program. She was also recently named Boston’s Playwright Laureate by Roxbury Community College. Kirsten is Assistant Professor of Theatre at the School of Theatre at Boston University and lives in Westborough, Massachusetts with her husband, two children, sister, and mother in their writing compound named Gwendolyn.
