Lily Houghton '17 has received an emerging playwright commission from Seattle Repertory Theatre's the Other Season.

The Other Season

Seattle Repertory Theatre will be commissioning work from three emerging playwrights as part of Seattle Rep’s the Other Season.

With support from the Elizabeth George Foundation, work from Houghton and her two fellow playwrights will be developed beginning in fall 2018. 

Houghton, born and raised in Manhattan, wrote her first play at age 17. Her play Dear received a PlayLab with MCC Theater in fall 2017 and a production at Shepherd University/CATF this April.

We look forward to collaborating with Joanna Garner, Lily Houghton, and C.A. Johnson on their dynamic projects, while showcasing their extraordinary voices through our programs.
