Allison Fradkin delights in applying her Women's & Gender Studies education to the creation of satirically scintillating stories for the stage. Scriptly speaking, her plays (sur)pass the Bechdel Test and enlist their characters in a caricature of the idiocies and intricacies of insidious isms. Allison's short plays have been presented by Accidental Shakespeare Company, Almost Adults Productions, American Blues Theater, Broken Nose Theatre, Clutch Productions, Dragon Productions, Experimental Theatre Cooperative, Kansas City Public Theatre, The Kennedy Center, The Majestic Theatre, Muhlenberg College, Ophelia's Jump Productions, Play Club West, StageQ, The Tank, UNO Theatre, and the Women's Theatre Festival. She has also written a full-length feminist musical tribute to The Golden Girls, which will make its debut with Queer Theatre Kalamazoo later this year. An enthusiast of inclusivity and accessibility, Fradkin freelances for her hometown of Chicago as Literary Manager of Violet Surprise Theatre, curating new works by queer women; and as Dramatist for Special Gifts Theatre, adapting scripts for actors of all abilities.
