Chris Phillips’s first play, REVOLVER, was given a workshop in 2010 at Los Angeles’s Celebration Theatre, and with only three performances, earned a GLAAD Media Award nomination for Outstanding Los Angeles Theater. His second play, ELYSIAN FIELDS, was presented at the 2011 New York International Fringe Festival. That same year, Chris wrote and directed a short film, “the things i cannot change,” and was chosen as an award recipient by the Robert Chesley Foundation, which supports the work of LGBT playwrights. Chris's third play, PIECES, was presented for a workshop run in Los Angeles during the spring of 2012 before hitting the 2012 New York International Fringe Festival, staged at the historic Cherry Lane Theatre and winning the award for Overall Excellence in Playwriting. Following the festival, PIECES returned for the Fringe Encore series at New York’s SoHo Playhouse, and in January of 2013, PIECES scored Chris's second GLAAD Media Award nomination for Outstanding Los Angeles Theater. 2013 also saw REVOLVER’s official world premiere as the final production of Celebration Theatre's 30th anniversary season. Chris’s newest play, PALE BLUE DOT, was given a staged reading in 2015 and selected as a semi-finalist for the Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center National Playwrights Conference, and his screenplay adaptation of PIECES ranked in the top ten percent of 2015 Academy Nicholl Fellowship candidates. Also in 2015, Chris completed three television pilots and two screenplays after studying at Jacob Krueger Studio in New York City. Chris currently lives and writes in Los Angeles.
