Hannah Vaughn Head ShotI am a Philadelphia-based playwright, by way of Brooklyn and Virginia. My full-length plays include Away From, The Unfathomable Blue and Look Up. Away From was work-shopped at Dixon Place and with Live Source Theatre Group. Look Up, or Why We Don’t Go Camping Anymore was developed at Fresh Ground Pepper’s BRB Artist Retreat. The Unfathomable Blue was part of Paper Kraine, a night of new works at The Kraine Theatre and The Navigators’ Dark Matter Reading Series. My one-act, A House of Tiny, had a staged reading at Dixon Place in 2018.

My short play, Officially Unofficial, premiered at the Players Theatre. My short play M and the Water Man premiered in The Navigators Lift Off Festival and has been performed at The Midwest Dramatists Conference 2018. The Morning After Alex Leaves premiered at Left Coast Theatre Company. Violet Clifford’s Senior Prank Extravaganza has been published in the online literary magazine, Feels Blind Literary.

Alongside Leigh Poulos, I am a co-creator, co-writer, and co-star of the hit web series, Dates Like This

I write plays about the future, climate change, women, LGBTQ families, isolation, and how we deal with loss and trauma. I’m interested in imagining what the future looks like and how our individualism and social structures will change. I like exploring characters who isolated themselves and how they pull themselves back to a community.
