Devin Berg is an emerging female playwright from Fort Worth, Texas, where she attended Texas Christian University, graduating Summa Cum Laude with her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre as well as the Forest A. Newlin Award for Excellence in Leadership. Her non-linear work explores the cosmic tension between fate and choice, the visceral grief of love, and the special, fleeting quality of life. Notable works include monologue-based social commentary, NO LIMITS, written for the International V-Day Campaign, a global movement to end gender violence, and performed annually by her alma mater, TCU, raising money for The Women’s Center of Tarrant County since 2015. Her one-act play, Mister Major and the Minor Wife, received its world premiere as part of Theatre TCU’s 2016-2017 season and was later nominated for a BroadwayWorld Dallas Award for Best New Play. Perhaps her most formative work thus far, SUCKERS received readings at Imprint Theatreworks’ First Impressions Festival as well as full production with Imprint Theatreworks at Dallas’ fan-favorite Festival of Independent Theatres at Bath House Cultural Center. Her most recent work, Butterfly Children, which brings light to “the worst disease you’ve never heard of,” Epidermolysis Bullosa, aims to raise money for DEBRA of America (Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa Research Association of America) in hopes that the power of storytelling can provide tangible change in the world, a belief that motivates Devin Berg daily.

Plays

  • Butterfly Children
    A fresh and devastating look at the story of Peter Pan through the lens of "the worst disease you've never heard of," Epidermolysis Bullosa, an illness which causes one's skin to be as fragile as a butterfly's wing. Immersive, movement-based, magical realism.
  • SUCKERS
    Wrath turns to apathy turns to desire turns to love in this bitter comedy about friendship, fate, and the tendency of life to pass us by. Jane, Alex, Daisy, and Holden, four best friends since freshman year of college, are trapped in the circle of each other, letting the fear of the unknown stop them from breaking free. Who will find their way out in this biting commentary on the danger of complacency and the imperfection of life?
  • Mister Major and the Minor Wife
    Nothing could touch Edith and Peter Major, headliners of a traveling circus troupe that touted their magic act, Mister Major and the Minor Wife, as "the best there ever was." Until an unexpected, infant addition to their partnership caused an avalanche of tragedy. Mother and son, Edith and Joseph Major, navigate the real strains of grief and the mystery of their repressed, familial past as fantastical...
