About the Playwright

Jonathan Alexandratos is a non-binary, New York City-based playwright. Their work tends to revolve around the highly personal: gender, issues related to the Greek/Albanian experience, and pop culture fandom – three seemingly divergent interests that Jonathan holds dear. Their work has been created thanks to Nashville Repertory Theatre’s Ingram New Works Lab, the Queens Council on the Arts, Abingdon Theatre Company, Mission to (dit)Mars, Fresh Ground Pepper, Wide Eyed Productions, the 1MPF, Strange Sun Theatre, PEACE Productions, and others who have given Jonathan residencies, grants, awards, and time.
