A. Rey Pamatmat

Rey’s play Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them began a rolling world premiere at the Actors Theatre of Louisville’s Humana Festival of New American Plays, earning a Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award Citation and a GLAAD Media Award nomination. Pamatmat has written a trilogy, Safe, Three Queer Plays, which follows the seismic changes in Queer America through the romantic and artistic life of a gay man of color. His additional full-length plays include House Rules (Ma-Yi), after all the terrible things I do (Milwaukee Rep, Huntington, AboutFace) and Thunder Above, Deeps Below (Second Generation). His newest play Blood in your Blood was developed at NYU and the Sundance Theater Program in Morocco. Pamatmat’s short works include Tilda Swinton Betrayed Us (Keen Company), This Is How It Ends (59E59’s Summer Shorts) and Gratuitous Nudity and the Undisclosed Costs of Questioning Surveillance Rather Than Bad Broccoli (Actors Theatre of Louisville). He has written for the tv series “NOS4A2” and is currently developing a pilot for AMC. His plays are published by Samuel French and Playscripts. Rey is a proud member of the Ma-Yi Writers Lab (Co-Director 2014-18). He teaches at Cornish College of the Arts, and was a Hodder, PoNY, and Princess Grace Fellow.
