Evelyn Jean Pine’s plays wrestle with moments when life feels so new your hair is electric. In May, PlayGround presented a staged reading of her latest play, 7 Secrets of Teaching Online. A June Ann Baker Prize winner, a PlayGround Resident Playwright, and a Djerassi Alum, she writes about Queen Isabella, the Lumiere brothers, and Bill Gates at 20. The Invisible Project, co-written with Katja Rivera, launched the Latinx Mafia’s Staged Reading series this March. Molecule LitMag just published her quick-fire climate change play, North Pole Bedtime. Fourth Wave on Medium publishes her poems. Her one-woman show, Freeloader in the House of Love, won “The Most Compelling Story” award at the Boulder Fringe.
For 13 years, she’s taught performance studies at San Francisco State University. She managed Computer Programmers for Social Responsibility, directed the second iteration of The Community Memory Project, developed the Working Families Online Roundtables for HandsNet, and launched the first online community for California Community Clinics. She’s a proud member/owner of the world’s greatest online community, The WELL.
