Jarrett McCreary seeks to embrace intimacy through playwriting. He was a member of the 2018/2020 Interact Core Playwrights. His play "The Children of Edgar and Nina" also saw its first professional production with The Neighborhood Theater in Chicago IL in 2020. Jarrett was also a finalist for the Terrence McNally Playwright Award (2020/21) and a winner of a Billy Penn Award (2021) for his collaborative play with Tiny Dynamite Theater. His stories are black, they are queer, they are magical, and they are vulnerable, and the hope is to use them as a tool to dive deep into conversations about human connection.
