Lora Danley

I am originally from Virginia but have lived in New York City since the summer of 2005. Through my plays I often like to explore the issues of family and forgiveness. I strongly believe in collaboration and fully expect others to add their artistic stamp to my work as it comes to life. When I'm not writing, I can be found training for a marathon, teaching chemistry, practicing yoga, or wandering the city with my camera.

Plays

  • Surprise, Surprise
    Anna is married to Susan but occasionally sleeps with her gay male best friend, Paul. Susan only discovers this when a baby unexpectedly arrives, forcing them to decide what direction their lives will then take and whether or not they can form a family to raise the child together.
  • Diamonds Are Forever
    Oliver and Marnie contemplate the meaning of life while waiting for the return of their alien friends.
  • Worms
    Maggie and Will are scientists who love to talk about science but that doesn't mean they can't fall in love.
