Bailey Jordan Garcia (they/them) is a playwright located in NYC. Bailey aims to write work that is dark, dangerous, and thought-provoking that usually speaks to the LGBT community and/or ponders on the wonders and dangers of the technological world.

While still just at the beginning of their career, they’ve been fortunate that their work has garnered interest from the theatre community. Their full length Pedo Punchers was a part of The Blank Theatre’s Living Room series. Also with The Blank, they became a winner of The Young Playwrights Festival with their piece What to Expect When You’re Expecting Our Lord and Savior (a play that also won “Best Play” at the Players Theatre Short Play Festival). Their full-length play Tvilah (or Arriving Where She Left) received a reading with The Bechdel Group! And in August their 10 minute play, Good Good Girls was made into a short film. They have gotten 4 people’s choice awards with PlayGround-NY and -LA, including two “Best Of the Best Ofs”. They’re also in their second year of Playground-One’s residency program where they’ve written their full length “Is this Beauty” and are currently working on another entitled “Crazy Jezebels”. They’ve also worked with groups such as Atlantic Acting Studio, Bite Sized Theatrics, Boston Theatre Company Cry Havoc, Ohio University, and over 30 others!

When they aren’t writing or seeing as much theatre as humanly possible, Bailey can usually be found at Bethesda Fountain, cuddling with their 3-legged pup, volunteering at Brave Trails (an LGBT+ summer camp) or talking your ear off about Angels in America.
