Judith Pratt, Writer
I’ve been an actor, director, theatre professor, journalist, critic, and playwright. Recently, I’ve turned to writing stories and novels. The Dry Country is on Amazon. Siljeea Magic is coming out in October from Black Rose Writing.
I have taught theatre classes at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Ithaca College, and Wells College. As a theatre critic, I’ve written for the Ithaca Journal and the Lansing Star.
My plays have been produced in Ithaca, New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Kansas City MO, Austin TX, and Cape Town South Africa. They have received readings at Edward Albee’s Great Plains Theatre Conference and the Last Frontier Theatre Conference. The Wright Place has been published by JAC Publishing Co., and Spiraling received a workshop production from the Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre in Kansas City.
Although much of my directing has been focused on new plays by local writers, I've directed The Mikado and Princess Ida for the Cornell Savoyards. As an actor, recent roles include Flute/Thisbe in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Theatre Incognita, Ithaca NY, and Margaret in Arthur Bicknell's My Great Dead Sister, Homecoming Players, Ithaca. I’ve also served as a voice/movement coach for the Ithaca Shakespeare Company.
