Bailey Jordan Garcia is a playwright/actor who is currently earning their BFA in Playwriting and Acting at The New School. Bailey aims to write work that is thought-provoking that usually speaks to the LGBT community and/or speaks on religion.

Bailey has seen a fair amount of success as a playwright (especially considering their age) -- spanning from winning "Best Play" at The Players Theatre's Short Play Festival, to having shorts featured on podcasts, to readings of full lengths with well-established companies, to being one of the winners of The Blank's "Young Playwright Festival".

When they're not writing, they try to see as much theatre as humanly possible, fawn over Kieran Culkin in "Succession", and love spending time with their 3-legged pup named Mushu

Plays

  • What to Expect When You're Expecting Our Lord and Savior
    Finding out you’re “with child” is a shock to any relationship, but when it’s your boyfriend telling you that he’s suddenly become pregnant with the next reincarnation of Jesus, it becomes a tad more complicated. This queer tragicomedy looks at the intricacies in relationships and faithfulness, and truly asks what can you expect when you’re expecting our lord and savior?
  • The Pedo Punchers Play
    Pedo Punchers (short for Pedophile Punchers) is a group of college-aged kids who come together and tackle pedophilia head first by luring men, exclusively from Grindr, to meet them in the back of a Walmart and then filming the encounter for their Youtube audience of over 100k followers. This is a play about them.
  • An Abstinent Orgy; or Two Pigeons Fighting Over a Hotdog
    Set in an almost completely contactless world, a few years in the future, five high-school seniors take on one of their toughest tasks -- completing a power point presentation on abstinence. The piece plays with the idea of intimacy all while only being able to connect through their zoom windows.

  • Tvilah (or Arriving Where She Left)

The piece explores the toxic feminine traits that are ingrained in us from a young age and how we learn ourself worth, through the lens of children

    A long overdue conversation between a mother and her daughter, spanning being queer, religion, and what it means to love someone else.
  • ChuckEology
    100 years from now, the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the teens who quarantined themselves inside the Chuck E Cheese they worked at, still quarantined, have turned the play space into a home, sanctuary, and a church.
