Emily's play The Blood will be presented at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this August with Stairwell Theater Company! (tickets)

Emily Elyse Everett

Emily is a writer and actor based in Brooklyn.


In her work, you will find: a fascination with psychological unraveling; the marrying of unassuming everyday experiences with the mythic; an obsession with women who are misguided or wronged; and a raw intensity. Emily's stories carry a deep tenderness and sharp wit, exploring the complexity of human morality, and questioning why we make the choices we do.

Emily was awarded Synecdoche Works' 2022 Frank Moffett Mosier Fellowship for Works in Heightened Language and the $3000 winning prize for her play Strange and Splendid. She was a Semifinalist for the Lanford Wilson New American Play Festival and a Winner of the Players Club of Swarthmore New Play Festival for her play Serenity,  selected for the 2023 Valdez Theater Conference for her play sorry sorry okay sorry, and a
 finalist for the Emerson Stages NewFest New Play Workshop and the Circle in the Square Theatre School Emerging Writer's Residency for her play New England Summer Storms


Emily also wrote the 5-episode serialized mystery podcast, "Process", which will be released in fall 2024. 

As an actor, Emily most recently played Becca in Nightdrive's tour of The Grown-ups, reprising the role from the sold-out NYC run, which extended three times. Time Out New York called it “the coolest new play you probably can’t see” and included it on their list of the top 10 shows of 2021.


Emily has also worked with The Public Theater, Ars Nova, Taylor Mac, Sweet Tea Shakespeare, and on self-produced projects. In a previous life, Emily was almost a medical student. 

Originally from Portland, Oregon, Emily has a BA from Brown University and is a Playwriting MFA candidate at Columbia University.
