We are happy to announce that our inaugural plays for Mneme Press come from none other than the estimable Maggie Lee!

Theater, SIS Productions, The Pocket Theater, Shoreline Community College, Playing in Progress, ReAct, Balagan Theatre, Double Shot Theatre Festival, Bindlestiff Studio, Theatre@First, Open Circle Theater, and more. Her steampunk train adventure The Tumbleweed Zephyr was nominated for a 2016 Gregory Award for Outstanding New Play, and was excerpted for the opening night event of the 2016 National Asian American Theater Conference in Ashland, Oregon. She was also a 2015 Art Projects grant recipient from 4Culture for her family park show The Journey of the Bell, a 2015 Playwright Mentor for Intiman Theatre’s Emerging Artists Program, a panelist for Asian American Women in Comedy at the 2011 National Asian American Theater Conference in Los Angeles, and featured at ACT’s Local Writers Showcase for the REPRESENT!
