Courtney Meaker

She/her

Courtney Meaker’s plays have been performed and developed across the United States including the Kennedy Center and National New Play Network, Seattle Repertory Theatre, San Francisco Playhouse, Annex Theatre, About Face Theatre, Macha Monkey Theatre, the Sewanee Writers Conference, and the Playwrights’ Center. Her plays have been published with Dramatic Publishing and Original Works. She describes her work as "reality-adjacent" often playing with conventions outside of kitchen-sink realism that focus on queer characters and feminist themes that tend to be bleak and funny at the same time. She’s a Stranger Award Genius Nominee and a Gregory Award Outstanding New Play Nominee. She’s an alumna of Seattle Repertory Theatre’s Writers Group and previous Walter E. Dakin Fellow at Sewanee Writers’ Conference. She’s a graduate of University of Iowa’s MFA Playwrights’ Workshop and a previous Jerome Fellow at the Playwrights’ Center. 

Types of Plays: 
I'm interested in stories that play with form, structure, and character. Interests of mine include queer and feminist narratives, horror, fairy tale, reality-adjacent worlds, and social justice.
