About Elizabeth

Greetings all, I write for film and theater and I'm the author of five books of fiction-- including A Four-Sided Bed, which is in development as a feature film-- and the playwright of Tonya & Nancy: the Rock Opera, a show that's drawn some crazy national media attention.
Best wishes to all fellow Scribes; My bio note is below:
Elizabeth Searle adapted the script for A FOUR-SIDED BED from her own critically acclaimed novel. A FOUR-SIDED BED appeared on the Boston Globe Paperback Bestseller list and was nominated by the ALA as a best LGBTQ novel of the year. It has been listed online as a Best Bisexual Love Story. The script A FOUR-SIDED BED has earned attention and awards at 20 festivals or contests in 2019/2020, including a recent wins as Best Feature Screenplay at the Massachusetts Independent Film Festival, a prize and staged reading at the ReelHeART International Film and Screenplay Festival in Toronto and prizes at the Indie Visions Film Festival and Hollywood Boulevard Film Festival and more. A short film, FOUR-SIDED, based on the novel, has screened at 2019 Festivals in Cannes, Boston, Chicago, Pittsburgh and more. Elizabeth also created TONYA & NANCY: THE ROCK OPERA, based on the Harding/Kerrigan skating scandal: an original theater work which has had multiple productions around the country, including in Boston, LA, Chicago and NYC. The show has drawn major media coverage, including ESPN Hollywood, MSNBC, CNN, , the AP, Good Morning America, and NPR. In Feb 2020, the rock opera had a production starring Broadway great Andrea McArdle. The rock opera has drawn film interest. Elizabeth’s other script projects include a 6-Episode TV series pilot and Bible. Along with A FOUR-SIDED BED, Elizabeth is the author of four other books of fiction. CELEBRITIES IN DISGRACE which the New York Times Book Review called ‘a miniature masterpiece,’ was produced as a short film, with a script co-written by Elizabeth. The film played at film festivals around the country; it premiered at the Woods Hole International Film Festival on Cape Cod. Elizabeth’s one-act play STOLEN GIRL SONG was produced ‘off off Broadway’ at the 2019 Act One: One Act Play Festival. Her newest musical theater piece, IDOL TALK, premiered in 2019.
