Amy Escobar Portrait by Yuliya Rae Photographer-1 copy.jpg

Amy Escobar is a Seattle-based writer, performer and creative. She tells stories that tend toward the dark feminine, the dumb funny and the highly aesthetic.

She is the recipient of a 2018 GAP Award from Artist Trust and a 2019 CityArtists Award from The Office of Arts & Culture/The Seattle Arts Commission to develop and present her next evening-length work We Go Mad, written with support from Rain City Projects and the HBMG Foundation.

She was also awarded a 4Culture 2018 Art Projects Grant for  her commission with the 14/48 Projects as a part of their Parks Program, which creates free summer theater for families in King County.

Her play Scary Mary and the Nightmares Nine (Annex Theater) was a 2017 Gregory Award nominee for Outstanding New Play and is being published my Mneme Press this year.
