Adrienne Dawes is an award-winning playwright and producer originally from Austin, TX. She has been a Literary Fellow at Tulsa Artist Fellowship (George Kaiser Family Foundation) and a NALAC Fund for the Arts grantee.  Her plays ask serious questions about race, gender, class, and sexuality (usually) in very comedic ways. Adrienne is a company member of Salvage Vanguard Theater.

While in Muncie, Adrienne will work with the Muncie Civic Theatre and with local local actors from the Muncie community to share a reading of the first pages of a new play. Within a span of about 10-11 years, Adrienne's family served as a rehabilitative foster home for children with special needs. As part of her residency with PlySpace, Adrienne is writing the first draft of the play "Untitled Adoption Project," a dark comedy that explores the evils of well-intentioned people.
