About Roger Q Mason
I am a Black, Irish, Filipino, plus-sized, queer, gender non-conformist writer/performer of color. The intersection of my identities compels me to make work that employs performance media as agents for visibility and inclusion. At my core, I am a creature of the theatre. My work has been seen at such theatres as New York Theatre Workshop, New Group Theatre, McCarter Theatre Center, Ensemble Studio Theatre/LA, Son of Semele Theatre, Chicago Dramatists, the Kraine Theatre, and the American Theatre of Actors. Recently, I have been commissioned by Hook and Eye Theatre, Company of Angels, Steep Theatre, The Fire This Time Festival and Serenbe Playhouse. I have been a finalist for the Screencraft Stage Play Contest and Lark Playwright’s Week. And I am a semi-finalist for the Bay Area Playwrights Festival and Shonda Rhimes’ inaugural Unsung Voices Fellowship. I’ve won the Hollywood Fringe Festival Encore Producers Award for my writing.
