Joshua Kahn is a playwright and Grade-A goof currently based in San Diego, California. He was born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles and acted in a couple of commercials before the age of 7. This ruined his ego. After a few years of forced hiatus, Joshua began acting in local theatres and ultimately enrolled in NYU Tisch as an undergraduate Drama student. He ended up graduating with a BFA in Film/Television Production, because nothing makes sense anymore. He's interned and written and directed and now lives in San Diego, where he is the co-founder of Wildly Successful Theatre Co.

Otherwise, he does the crossword puzzle every night and records an 80-year old joke from his Grandpa's army-issued joke book every morning.

Plays

  • Do Not Approach
    Two neighbors argue about a lost dog.
  • Less Than Three
    Ahh, 2010. Times were different back then. A weekend-long romance between a college senior anxious about life after graduation and a high school junior anxious about the little things. The story is told in two parallel timelines: In one, the relationship proceeds unabated and runs its course... In the other, a crucial piece of information is divulged early on that derails it all.

    Ahh, 2010. Times were different back then. A weekend-long romance between a college senior anxious about life after graduation and a high school junior anxious about the little things. The story is told in two parallel timelines: In one, the relationship proceeds unabated and runs its course... In the other, a crucial piece of information is divulged early on that derails it all. A play about the different choices we could've made and whether those choices would've even made a difference in the long run.
  • Spooky Saturday!
    A body swapping psychological horror. A young, idealistic woman preparing to leave for college winds up trapped in the body of her bitter Grandfather. As they attempt to swap back, they learn some hard lessons about themselves, each other, and the young woman's hopelessly clueless Dad (the Grandfather's son).
  • She
    Set in the "near future," a 30-something schlub with incel tendencies falls in love with an artificial intelligence, but runs up against a paywall he can't afford. After some digging on the origins of the AI, he discovers a truth that's darker and more insidious than he could have ever imagined. Yes, it's sort of like Spike Jonze's "Her," but meaner.
  • Buffalo Grand
    An entitled 20-something goes on an impromptu, ill-advised cross country road trip with his senile Grandfather. And then he goes on an ill-advised road trip back with his fiancee. All the while, he slowly comes up on the limits of his own capabilities, frustratedly lashing out and harming those around him. A character study of millennial male ego...with laughs!(?)
