My name is LaurA! Force Scruggs and I am a published, produced and commissioned playwright. I am a Playwright in Residency at Three Cat Productions in Chicago, where I am writing a play about Jane Addams (and the impact of childhood upon her career and her work with children at Chicago's Hull House), which will tentatively be produced in 2022/23 (postponed due to COVID-19).
My play, Punk Grandpa (about being yourself and the value of the grandparent/grandchild relationship) is published by PlayScripts Online. It’s been presented throughout Chicagoland as well as in New York City.
My play, Heart of Fairy (explores concepts of womanhood and motherhood through the unique lens of a fairy) was produced as part of Three Cat's season in Chicago in 2019 and is published by Smith Scripts.
I have been granted a writing residency with Write On, Door County for October 3rd - 10th, 2021.
