Class of 1960 Adjunct Faculty Research Fund

I’ve been awarded a grant from Barnard College, where I teach playwriting, to support the writing and development of “Moseley.”

“Moseley” will draw upon the troubled and troubling history of my Mississippi forebears, many of whom were enslavers. Via this history, and via a personal lens, an examination of my own place in the world, I hope to uncover and explore links between the past and the present.

I’ve worked on much of this material in prose form, am taking a different approach here as I write a play on the subject. The grant will support travel to Mississippi, and also a workshop of the script, once it is completed.

2022 NYFA Fellow

I’m delighted to have been awarded a 2022 NYFA Fellowship in Playwriting. The support will help with the further development of “To the Playground”.


Now available with Northwestern University Press


I’m delighted with this edition of these two plays, originally produced in 2013 and 2019. Order directly from NU Press, via Amazon, or elsewhere!

“The Ice Siren” returns

I wrote libretto for this piece back in 2009, collaborating with my dear friend John Ellis. We’re back for two nights only: February 14th and 15th at The Jazz Gallery.

Tickets and more info available here.

“Notes on My Mother’s Decline” has closed

Yesterday, we closed Notes on My Mother’s Decline after a three week run. Many more photos are available on my Instagram page (@andybragen). And more will be posted soon at In the meanwhile, here’s a production photo taken by Julieta Cervantes. I’m grateful to so many people, including Director Knud Adams, actors Ari Fliakos and Caroline Lagerfelt, who were so brilliant in the piece, our wonderful designers, and of course my co-producers at Playco. It has been a thrilling, and exhausting several weeks. Onward!
