Louise Schwarz is a playwright, educator, dramaturg, and director living in New York City. She loves dogs, long-distance trains, scary movies, baseball, summer camp, the B train, conveniently timed bouts of amnesia, and fast-paced plays with no intermission. The best part of theater is the adrenaline rush from feeling like you’re connecting with another human being’s story right there, live and in real time. She aims to communicate compassion, humor, incisiveness, and a relief from alienation. Most of all she aims to communicate hope, because hope is timeless.
