BIOGRAPHY OF THE DIRECTOR

“The talented writer and actress Elisabeth Gray" (The New Yorker) was born and raised in the American South before moving to England to attend Oxford University. As an emerging female director, Gray has directed six short films featuring the talents of Amy Sedaris (Strangers with Candy, At Home with Amy Sedaris), Lee Tergesen (Oz, Weird Science), Gethin Anthony (NBC’s Aquarius, HBO’s Game of Thrones), Suzanne Bertish (Rome), John Behlmann (Riverdale), and Golden Globe nominee and theater legend Elizabeth Ashley (Treme). As a writer, Gray was a 2017 Finalist for the Made in NY Pilot Prize for her half hour comedy pilot The Monday Night Crowd, a show about a conservative couple from West Virginia moving to New York City and saving their marriage through the drag scene. An IFP Emerging Storyteller alum, Gray’s mockumentary web series Understudies, starring Richard Kind, David Rasche and Elizabeth Ashley was optioned as a pilot and her 2013 tragicomic short Socks and Bonds was a festival favorite that found its home on PBS. As a playwright, her plays have been translated into multiple languages and performed around the world. Most notably, her play Wish I Had a Sylvia Plath, a comedy about suicide, won the 2007 Fringe First Award for ‘Innovative and Outstanding New Writing’, an award shared with Tracey Letts.
