Molly Rhodes is a member of the San Francisco Bay Area theatre company PlayGround, where she first developed her play Mrs, McKenzie Makes Herself Known. Last spring she was awarded the PlayGround Fellowship for a full length play, The Singularity of We, to be part of PlayGround’s 2008 Best of Festival. She has had her plays developed and performed at Magic Theatre, the Bay Area Playwrights Festival, and American Conservatory Theatre, among others. This spring, Molly will mentor a budding young female playwright as part of the 2008 San Francisco Young Playwrights Festival. She is also an artistic associate at Magic Theatre, where she coordinates the literary committee and oversees the development and creation of dramaturgy for Magic’s productions and workshops. When Molly is not working on plays or in the theatre, she raises money for At The Crossroads, a nonprofit that does counseling-based street outreach to homeless youth in San Francisco. She is also a freelance theatre critic for the San Francisco Weekly.
