Hi! Welcome to my website. My name is Alix Sobler and I am a playwright and sometimes performer. I am a New Yorker, born and bred, who lived in Winnipeg, MB for a few years, and lived to tell the tale! Now I am back in NY, but still hang out in Canada more than your average American. Legal to work across borders! I am at times a playwright, actor, solo performer, comedian and teacher of all of the above. MFA: Columbia University, BA: Brown University.
Here’s the official (sort of boring but important) stuff:
Alix’s play Sheltered won the 2018 Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition and will receive a world premiere at Alliance Theater in 2018. Her play The Great Divide won the 2015 Canadian Jewish Playwriting Competition and was named as finalist for the Henley Rose Playwriting Competition and runner-up for the Jane Chambers Award. It received its world premiere in September of 2016 at The Finborough Theatre in London. Her play The Secret Annex, was produced at the Segal Centre in Montreal in 2016. It was originally produced 2014 at the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre. In 2015 it was published by Scirroco Press, and it received a public reading at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. She has had other work read or produced in theaters across North America including the Roundabout Theatre Company (New York, NY), The Kennedy Center (Washington, D.C.), South Coast Repertory (Costa Mesa, CA), Theatre Ariel (Philadelphia, PA), Chicago’s Theatre Seven (Chicago, IL), Mad & Merry Theater Company (New York, NY), Prairie Theatre Exchange (Winnipeg, MB), Brown Trinity Playwright’s Rep (Providence, RI), The Tank (New York, NY), Theatre Or (Minneapolis, MN), and others. She has a commission with Theatre J (Washington, DC) to adapt the Yiddish play Miriam. She is a graduate of Brown University and received her MFA in playwriting from Columbia University in 2017, where she was honored to study with David Henry Hwang, Lynn Nottage and Charles Mee, among others.
