Dina Epshteyn is a freelance theater director who has helmed productions, workshops, and readings for a variety of theaters in NYC. Regionally, she directed the World Premiere of Henry Murray's THREE VIEWS OF THE SAME OBJECT (winner, Woodward/Newman Award for Best Drama) and Barton Bishop's STILL THE RIVER RUNS at Bloomington Playwrights Project and is returning there this year to direct the premiere of William Missouri Downs's MAD GRAVITY.

Her first play—a short entitled NO BLUEBERRIES—won the 2009 $7,500 Grand Prize in Manhattan Theater Club's REALationships National Playwrighting Competition and was staged at their City Center Off-Broadway space. Ms. Epshteyn graduated with distinction from McGill University.
