MEGAN TERRY is an internationally renowned playwright, performer, photographer, and author of more than 60 published plays and musicals, produced worldwide and translated into every major language. Her interest in theater began at the age of seven, when she saw her first play: "I went and I looked at the stage and I fell madly in love. I knew I wanted to do that, whatever it was." Elected to lifetime membership in the College of Fellows of the American Theatre in 1994 for "distinguished service to the profession by an individual of acknowledged national stature." She has received the 1983 Dramatists Guild Annual Award, ATA Silver Medal for "distinguished contributions to, and service in, the American theatre," Best Play Obie Award, Yale and Guggenheim Fellowships, two Rockerfeller grants and a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellowship. "Art is about taking action," she says. "The essential core of theatre is action. I believe in taking creative action. What else is there to do?"
