Meghan is an Ovation Award-winning playwright based in Los Angeles. Full-length plays include The Pliant Girls (winner of the 2014 Ovation Award for Playwriting for an Original Play), The Kill-or-Dies (Max K. Lerner Fellowship winner, Princess Grace Award semifinalist), Psyche (Princess Grace Award finalist), and others. She wrote the libretto for Operaworks’ social justice opera The Discord Altar, and the book and lyrics for a new musical adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma with composer Sarah Taylor Ellis. Emma was the pilot musical for Broadway production company Apples & Oranges Studios' THEatre ACCELERATOR, and has been workshopped in Washington D.C., Brooklyn, Orlando, Los Angeles, New York City, and London. Meghan wrote the lyrics for the song cycle Untuned Ears Hear Nothing but Discord, which premiered at Lincoln Center as part of In Need of Music: The Songs of Ben Toth. Current projects include the original musical These Girls Have Demons (music by Sarah Taylor Ellis, workshopped as part of Pittsburgh CLO's SPARK festival 2018), Cowboy Elektra (with Rogue Artists Ensemble, music by the Dustbowl Revival's Zach Lupetin), and The Tasters (the Temblors). She is so happy to be a Temblor.
