Mollie Gordon (she/her/hers) is a playwright, theatre artist, and educator based in Brooklyn, NY. She was a 2022 recipient of the David Lindsay-Abaire Award for Excellence in Playwriting. She is the Program Assistant for Literature at Symphony Space. Mollie holds a BA from Sarah Lawrence College in Theatre and Writing.
Involved in the theatre world from a young age as a member of the renowned Children's Chorus at The Metropolitan Opera, Mollie has worked everywhere from The Met to the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. She is deeply passionate about making the arts accessible and actively anti-oppressive. She uses her theatremaking to create queer utopias, and to depict queer people carving out space for themselves in the midst of capitalist and patriarchal claustrophobia.
Mollie's plays include juice, Hartford, and E (and T) Go to the Pride Parade, all of which are available on New Play Exchange. She is currently working on two new plays that feature a TV game show, a biblical heroine, and more mayhem.
Mollie's resume and CV are available upon request.
