Jeffrey Neuman is an award-winning playwright whose work has been performed at theaters and festivals across the U.S., Australia, and the U.K. His plays have been produced and/or developed by, among many others, the Denver Center Theatre Company. As a director and dramaturg, Jeffrey has worked for the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, the University of Colorado at Boulder, and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
Jeffrey will describe what makes playwriting such a unique and singular form of writing. He’ll include some fun, informative glimpses into the joys and frustrations, the celebrations and the heartaches of being a playwright, in general, and a Colorado playwright, in particular.
Jeffrey also will talk about Rough Draught Playwrights (RDP), a Denver-based company he co-founded that fosters connection and collaboration among Colorado playwrights.
He has presented professional papers for the Association for Theater in Higher Education and the American Alliance of Theatre Education. He is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America.
In 2012, he co-founded Rough Draught Playwrights (RDP), a Denver-based company that connects Colorado playwrights. RDP hosts quarterly events called “Open Mic Theatrical Playgrounds,” at which playwrights at any level of development can present works-in-progress in front of a relaxed and friendly audience.
Outside of his playwriting activities Jeffrey has worked in a variety of management and marketing roles. He facilitates literary events for the Denver Post’s esteemed Pen & Podium series.
