Mollie Gordon (she/her/hers) is a playwright and theatre-maker based in Brooklyn, NY. She was a 2022 recipient of the David Lindsay-Abaire Award for Excellence in Playwriting, and a 2023 finalist for the New Perspectives Women's Work LAB. Her plays have been developed with The Bechdel Group, Athena Project, and Sarah Lawrence College. She is the Program Assistant for Literature and Marketing 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 Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. 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 is particularly interested in utilizing elements of fantasy to create more multifaceted queer representation for the stage.
Mollie's plays include juice, Every Wand'ring Bark, Hartford, E (and T) Go to the Pride Parade, and If It Weren't for the Women, We'd Still Be Stuck in the Desert, all of which are available on New Play Exchange.
