Robin Goldberg

Dramatic Writer
Class of 2024


Robin Goldberg is a playwright, TV and screenwriter, and dramaturg originally from Boston, MA, and is about to complete her Dramatic Writing MFA at Carnegie Mellon University. Robin is primarily a comedy writer who believes “everything is copy,” and whose work explores and celebrates how we build communities with others and how we build homes inside ourselves.

Robin’s plays have been produced and/or recognized by universities and theatre organizations across the country including Emerson College (“On My Honor” – Rod Parker Playwriting Fellowship), Company One Theatre, She NYC Arts, B Street Theatre, Playwrights Foundation, Carnegie Mellon University, and by Theater Masters’ Take Ten Festival, Glitterbox Theater, and the Princess Grace Foundation (“Tall Spire”) this year. Her short play, “Post Malone Has Food Poisoning: A Late-Night Cooking Segment” was recently performed this winter as part of CMU’s Playground festival XXI.

Robin is currently developing a new play about a 30-year-old woman throwing herself a bat mitzvah (loosely based on a true story) and a new screenplay about two sisters, an astrophysicist and a multi-instrumentalist musician, working together to create sonifications of space objects and to repair their relationship.

Robin received her BA in Theatre Studies (Playwriting and Dramaturgy) from Emerson College and is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America. You can read more about her and her work at
