Connor Wentworth

Playwright, Creator, & Visionary

Connor Wentworth has always been captivated by the arts. From a young age, they loved acting in plays and musicals, always wondering where these stories came from. As they grew up, Wentworth found that having an artistic outlet was the perfect way to express their thoughts and imagination. In 2017, they fell in love with playwriting, and haven't looked back since. They are constantly meeting people from all walks of life, developing new plays, and always looking for the next adventure, should that be in Seattle, San Francisco, or their soon-to-be home city -- New York.

They are blessed to share the Earth with the likes of Harry Styles, Lorde, Lady Gaga, and Kate Bush.

Connor is committed to empowering the voices of those who feel lost in the theatre world, promoting Queer storytelling by offering sticky and fresh perspectives, and creating bold, game-changing theatre.

“There can be 100 people in a room and 99 of them don’t believe in you, but all it takes is one and it just changes your whole life…”

Lady Gaga

Connor Wentworth is passionate, self defined, and brilliant in every sense of the way. Connor's playwrighting is a work of genius, using incredibly detailed, illustrious, and gorgeous poetry to adapt various mediums to tell compelling and relevant stories. Connor knows themselves inside and out and Connor brings every aspect of their personality to what they do. Incredibly unique, vibrant, astoundingly creative, and a joy to be around. Connor will enhance, enliven, and improve every project that they are apart of.

Connor Wentworth is one of my favorite writers & directors to work with and watch. Every time I’ve been lucky enough to encounter or work on one of their plays, I am transported to and enveloped in deep, vibrant new worlds, full of love, humor, complexities, loss, grief and joy. Connor adeptly and brilliantly devises vibrant, passionate, and profound theatre with their poetic storytelling.  Whether those worlds are far away in the past or intertwined with our present, any audience member can find someone or something to connect to in Connor’s work.

Connor's work can be summed up in one word- striking. Their poetic writing style through a contemporary world is something I don't see from most contemporary playwrights. Their work is ambitious and larger than life while still taking moments to recognize the humanity within all of their characters. Their commitment to the process and the "making" of theater keeps them constantly creating and improving on their past work. Their work is one you need in your season.

and now what?

Life is in flux for me right now. After graduating mid-pandemic into a lifeless field (like literally, no theatre was happening when I graduated), I have spent the last 18 months getting West Coast rehab in the incredible city of San Francisco. I have spent this time reflecting on the first 21 years of my life and thinking about my wants, needs, goals, and how I want to go about getting them. 

This August, my play The Destination of This Train Is (A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships) will see its world premiere at Euphoria Theatre Company, under the direction of Kennadi Rae Wells. Train will run from August 6th-22nd at the Boston Center of the Arts Black Box Theatre. If you are willing and able to contribute to the show's run, please do so here. Any and all contributions are greatly appreciated. 

I will begin my 4th semester at San Francisco State University this fall. Still, with a twist -- I will be moving to New York City in September, meaning most of my degree will be completed remotely. After figuring out how to make devised, ensemble-based theatre on Zoom in 2020 and 2021, this doesn't feel daunting at all. 

And that's about all for now. Stay tuned for future updates, and of course, all the love.
