About Kerry

Kerry Davies is a playwright from New York. Currently living in Connecticut, she is working on her MFA in Creative Writing with a concentration in Stage and Screen at Fairfield University. She wrote her first play at age seventeen for a high school project. What she found was a way to combine two of her passions: theatre and writing. As an undergrad at Fairfield, Davies had four plays produced by Theatre Fairfield, won several Playwriting Prizes, as well a Humanities Institute Grant and The Mary Louise Larrabee Grant. She acted as an intern for New Dramatists in New York City. Since leaving Fairfield University’s Undergrad Program in 2011, she has had over fifteen productions, staged readings, and excerpt readings in Connecticut and Manhattan. Davies has penned eighteen plays of all sizes and topics and is currently working on three simultaneously. She has studied at the Einhorn School of the Performing Arts through Primary Stages in New York City under many great instructors, including Brooke Berman; a New Dramatists alum. Davies was the Resident Playwright of the Falcon Repertory Company in Fairfield, CT and acted as the Creative Apprentice with Bridgeport Theatre Company’s New Works Program. At Shakespeare on the Sound, she started out as an intern; blogging about various topics related to their upcoming production of As You Like It. Then she acted as the Play-reading Apprentice with Shakespeare on the Sound; having a total of four Play-reading’s over a two-year span. For the past two and a half years, she has been a member of the Westport Writer’s Workshop, taking classes and workshops with a specialization in Writing Through Trauma and with her beloved Advanced Playwriting Workshop, with Douglas Moser as the instructor. Davies has written a few spec-scripts, web episodes, and has experience in Acting, Sound Design, and Directing. As a writer, she is dedicated to telling stories not always told, including those of women and disabled people. She hopes her work will help others in the future.
