Bio and Contact
Playwright BRYAN STARCHMAN grew up in the small foothill town of Mariposa, CA., just outside of Yosemite National Park. He began writing short stories in the first grade and fell in love with screenwriting in high school. Soon he tried his hand at playwriting. At UCLA, he spent four years honing his craft. There, he won the UCLA playwriting award for his satire on fraternity life. He worked as a script reader and production assistant at FOX studios for John Davis (Predator, Courage Under Fire, Grumpy Old Men, Dr. Doolittle), Bender/Spink (The Butterfly Effect, The Ring, A History of Violence) and STARZ (Spartacus, Magic City). Unfortunately Bryan and Los Angeles went together like Elizabeth Taylor and husbands -- it just wasn’t meant to be. Now he lives in Mariposa where he teaches American Literature, Advanced Placement Language, and Theatre at his old high school. His 21 published plays have been produced over 2000 times in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, 9 out of 10 Canadian Provinces (come on Prince Edward Island!) and six more countries including Mexico, England, Italy, Dubai of the United Arab Emirates, South Africa, and Portugal. He has also collaborated with playwright and composer Stephen Murray to create the satirical "Just Another High School Musical."· In 2015 he was the co-producer of TEDxYosemite. The event featured eight speakers including scientists, activists, and performers throughout a full day event that included hands on activities the related to the park. Participants told their own stories in a StoryCorps booth and those stories went on to be cataloged at the Library of Congress. In 2018 he was the recipient of the NBC RISE grant beating out nearly 1,000 other schools and his drama program was featured coast to coast on The Today Show.
