Bambi Everson is a playwright, actress, and teaching artist. She studied with Geraldine Page and Michael Schulman, and appeared in many Off-Off Broadway productions in her youth. She wrote her first play in 2015, and has since completed 20 more – five full lengths, eight one-acts and eight shorts.
Her work tends to incorporate oddball characters and situations. Subject matter has ranged from screwball comedy to dark melodrama, from cannibals in suburban Long Island, to murderous love triangles amongst octogenarians in an assisted living facility. She’s been influenced as much by cinema as she has by theater, an inescapable accident of birth, as she’s the daughter of noted film historian, William K. Everson.
Her full-length Hammet-Chekhov mashup, THE THIN MAN IN THE CHERRY ORCHARD, is part of the 2019 NY Fringe Festival. Her play, MURDER IS SERVED, won 2nd Place in the 2019 One Act competition at The Little Theatre of Alexandria, VA. Indie Theater Now published her full-length play, NEITHER HERE NOIR THERE, which had a sold out run at Manhattan Repertory Theatre in 2017. It also received a student production at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C. In 2015, she was the recipient of the Yip Harburg Foundation scholarship and her work has been produced at Emerging Artists Theatre and at Hudson Guild as part of NY Summerfest. She teaches playwriting in two Manhattan arts schools and is a member of The Dramatist’s Guild.
