Brandy N. Carie is a winner of the SLOAN/CMU Screenwriting Competition, the Kennedy Center National Student Playwriting Award, and a finalist for the Princess Grace award. She writes about women, werewolves (and other canines), capitalism, whiskey, and doomsday preppers. She also writes tiny musicals and puppet game shows, and occasionally directs plays and operas.
Carie has received residencies at SPACE on Ryder Farm, the Edward Albee Foundation, and the National Winter Playwrights Retreat. Her plays have been developed at Actors Theatre of Louisville, Pittsburgh’s City Theatre, the Kennedy Center, and Northlight Theatre, and produced in NYC by Everyday Inferno Theater. Her storage container mini-opera (in which The Universe uses blindfolds and heat lamps to recount the beginning of Everything) was produced by the Off-Book Club with Bricolage Production Company. Currently, Carie is a finalist for the 2020 SLOAN/CMU prize with her alt-history screenplay RECTIFIED: AN APOCRYPHAL HISTORY OF BOURBON. She is also developing the seven-play BUNKER CYCLE, which explores American survivalism and doomsday prepping, as well as a television pilot about lady pirates.
