John McCloskey, screenwriter
I was born in Boston, Mass. My father was a teacher. My mother was a singer.
As a teenager I became immersed in the plays of Shakespeare, Ibsen, O’Neill,
Tennessee Williams, Albee, John Osborn. At first I read them as literature.
Then, dramatic possibilities filled my head.
I acted in a celebrated production of As You Like It in high school, playing Jacques.
It was directed by Greg Almquist. Four years ago, I acted in a production of 1776 at
KVTA (Kankakee Valley Theatre Association). I was interviewed in a publicity work-up
for the play on Facebook and You Tube.
I got a BA from the University of Washington at Seattle.
My play, The Kegger won the Civic Theatre of Lafayette Local Playwrighting Contest
and was performed there on May 17, 2016. I used the pen-name “J.S. Green” then.
My play A Solemnly Questioning Air is was produced at the CTGL in Lafayette, Indiana on
June 3-5, 2016.
My play The Pizza Paradox reached the semi-finals in the Little Fish Theatre Play contest in 2015, in San Pedro, CA.
My novel Do It Yourself is available on kindle at Amazon.
My play The Blood Machine was selected to be performed at the Valiant Theatre in New Orleans in 2018.
