THE WRITER


STEVEN FECHTER

Steven Fechter co-wrote the screenplay for the 2004 film The Woodsman (based on his play). For that film Fechter was a Sundance Festival screenwriter and Humanitas Prize finalist. The Woodsman play (published by Samuel French) has been continuously produced in North America, Europe, and Australia. In the summer of 2014, 360repco produced, and Thom Fogarty directed, the world premiere of his play Lancelot at The Gym at Judson in New York. Fechter has since adapted Lancelot for the screen as a feature-length film. His other theatrical works have been produced throughout the U.S. Recent productions include Resonance Ensemble’s 2011 production of Shakespeare’s Slave at the Clurman Theatre in New York. In 2012, Thom Fogarty and Other Side Productions produced world premieres of his plays The Artifacts and The Mentee at the Bridge Theatre in New York. In late 2015 Theatre Bielefeld will produce the world premiere of his new play Serpent’s Tooth in Bielefeld, Germany. He is a two-time winner of the Samuel French Short Play Festival and has been awarded writing fellowships at Yaddo and New River Dramatists. He is a member of Oberon Theatre Ensemble, Resonance Ensemble, EST Playwrights Unit, and The Dramatists Guild.
