Stacey Isom Campbell’s play, “Laundry at the Coin & Spin,” received an Equity-approved showcase production in New York City as part of the fifth annual Collective:10 Play Festival.
Ms. Campbell’s play, along with four other ten-minute plays, premiered Nov. 1-5 at The Collective: NY.
“Equity means my play meets the criteria to be considered a professional production,” said Ms. Campbell, associate professor of creative writing at Lee. “It’s my first Equity show, and my first production in NYC.”
Ms. Campbell’s play deals with the escalating acts of violence in the country and the fear of that threat as, according to the play’s synopsis, “laundry takes on new meaning when two women take refuge in a laundromat.”
In addition to its premiere at The Collective: NY, “Laundry at the Coin & Spin” will be published in The Collective’s fifth play anthology.
Ms. Campbell joined the Department of Language and Literature at Lee in 2007. She earned a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in script and screenwriting from Regent University and an MFA in creative writing from Old Dominion University.
Ms. Campbell is a fellow of the Hambidge Center, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico. She is also a recipient of the David Scott Sutelan Memorial Award.
An accomplished playwright, some of Ms. Campbell’s plays include “Letters to John Lennon,” “Touching Aurora,” “Smokin’ Devils,” “California Dreamin’,” “On the 8’s,” and more. Her work has been seen or won awards at The Barter Theatre, Pittsburgh New Works Festival, The Great Plains Theatre Conference, and L.A. First Stage, among others.
