Biography

P.C. Verrone is a writer, theatrical artist, and storyteller born and raised in Los Angeles, California. He graduated from Harvard University in 2018. His short plays Eve and The Son Also Rises were produced in the Blank Theater's Young Playwrights Festival. His play Calamus was workshopped by The Custom Made Theater and a semi-finalist for the 2017 Eugene O'Neill National Playwrights Conference. His plays The Tamale Man and Slow Your Roll were featured in the Native Voices Short Play Festival. His four-part series, A Queer History of American Food, an exploration of LGBTQ+ history through iconic Amerian dishes, was produced by Center Theatre Group's Digital Stage in 2021 and is available on their Community Stories website.

Through his perspective as a queer man of mixed Black, Italian, Osage, and Kiowa heritage, he uses his work to explore and uplift underrepresented facets of American culture and history. Recently, his creative interests have focused on the intersections of race, coloniality, eco-justice, and queerness. The driving factor behind much of his work is building productive, supportive, and beautiful spaces.

He was recently selected as a participant in the inaugural Black Creatives Revision Workshop, a collaboration between We Need Diverse Books and Penguin Random House. He's currently working on a commission from the Urbanite Theater as well as his debut novel. When he isn't writing, he enjoys supporting local drag artists and baking with his fiancé.
