Emma Watkins is a playwright, dramaturg, and performer.
Her plays bleed up from redacted ink and lost sentences. She strives to give women the opportunity to embellish, interrogate, and re-tell the stories of their lives. Quite often, they sing, too.
With the support of a Fulbright Award, Emma spent a year in Wales, studying performance adaptations of Welsh myths and folklore. Her research culminated with the creation of a new play, Unbecoming, which has been developed in collaborations with PlayPenn and Cardiff University in Wales. It will receive its first full production with Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts in 2021.
