Morgan Dean



is a genderqueer Queens-based playwright and actor and uses they|them|theirs pronouns. Since moving to NYC after graduating summa cum laude from The Hartt School with a BFA in Music Theatre, Morgan has expanded beyond just musical theater. In 2016 they got involved in politics, working for Hillary for America, Jehmu for DNC, and Sister District NYC and is currently focused on activism within the queer community as a Board Member of National Queer Theater, and proud member and Social Media Coordinator for Ring of Keys: a collective of women, trans, and gender non-conforming people in musical theater. Although Morgan has always been a writer and had their poetry performed in NYC (FIRSTS, The Shrill Collective, Lemon and Ginger), this past year, Morgan discovered a love for playwriting. Thick Blood Thick Water is their first play and has been produced by No Man's Land Theatre Co., Broad Views on Broadway, the Summer Fresh Festival, and now Honey Dipped Productions with Producer Juwan Alan Crawley. Morgan continues to write poetry and new plays, their favorite of which is called The Birthday Party, or Three People Who Are A Mess, a comedic investigation of honesty, deception. and vulnerability and why queer millennials struggle to have healthy relationships. The Birthday Party  made its premier in The Shrill Collective's 2nd Annual Shrillfest on September 28th and 29th, directed by Anne Ciarlone. Morgan is a proud member of The Dramatists Guild.
