I (Rachel Luann Strayer) am a dramachick; a playwright, actress, director, wife, teacher, singer, reader…well, you get the idea. I’ve loved theatre since my first moment on stage singing “I’m a little inch-worm” — hey, at least I got to be the inch-worm’s head — and I’ve been writing, well, since I could write, although I seem to remember a break-through in 7th grade science when my friend insisted I “WRITE MORE!” of my “novel” and give her something to read during class. Now I have my undergraduate degree in theatre…sort of (it’s a long story), plus an M.A. and an MFA, both in creative writing/playwriting from Wilkes University. I am the co-founder of Ghostlight Productions (with my AMAZING husband!), a small theatre group in northeast Pennsylvania, and I’m an Assistant Professor in the Communication and Humanities Department at Keystone College. I wrote a play entitled Drowning Ophelia which was produced by San Francisco’s Repurposed Theatre and directed by Ellery Schaar in 2013. I am currently working on other playwriting projects and – hey, why not – a young adult novel (?!).
