BIPOC Playwrights Project

The BIPOC Playwrights Project is a website dedicated to BIPOC* playwrights of the 20th and 21st centuries, whose works are in English or with English translations widely available.

This site is intended to serve as a resource for theater educators and practitioners looking for a broader choice of texts and materials. Each playwright profile includes a list of representative plays, a brief bio, and links to online texts or resources in UC Berkeley library databases (accessible to students, faculty, and staff with a CalNet ID). The directory of playwrights is by no means exhaustive and continues to be a work in progress.

Please Note: The playwrights included in this directory are not necessarily affiliated with UC Berkeley or the Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies.
