“Kimberly Pritchard holds an M.F.A. in Playwriting from The University of Georgia and is pursuing a Ph.D. in Theatre in New York. Her work has been read, produced, or recognized by Southeastern Theatre Conference (SETC), Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KC/ACTF) Region IV, Twentieth Century Playwrights Festival, the Hippodrome State Theatre, Clemson University, WOW Café’s Reality Show, The University of London, and Hawaii International Conference of Arts and Humanities. The Box, a one-act play, is published in the avant-garde international literary journal Collages & Bricolages. Kim has served as a past managing editor of the Journal of American Drama and Theatre and has taught playwriting and script analysis at University of Georgia and Marymount Manhattan College. A native of Miami, Florida, Kim has studied in England, Italy, and Spain and currently resides in New York City. Kimberly Pritchard’s writing incorporates techniques from various methods of image-making: visual arts, film, music and sound. Her sense of storytelling has been strongly conditioned by the literary tradition of magical realism, the worlds of her plays often hovering between a common reality and one of miracles. Nearly all of her plays empower female characters by resurrecting and redefining images from cultural histories that have traditionally rendered women weak.”—Kimberly Prichard, http://www.netspace.org/~icwp/pritchard.html, accessed August 16, 2006.
