BIPOC Playwrights Project

Welcome to the BIPOC Playwrights Project, a website dedicated to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) 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.
