CUSI CRAM is a playwright, screenwriter, and a sometimes actress. Her plays have been produced by LAByrinth Theater Company, Primary Stages, New Georges, the Williamstown Theatre Festival, and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, amongst others. She has received three Emmy nominations for her work in children's television and recently finished her second season as a writer on Showtime's The Big C.
At my first meeting with a literary agent of some repute, I found myself nodding at everything she said, despite whether or not I agreed with any of her pronouncements. One thing I affirmed with my bobbing head was that I was no longer interested in being an actress. All that mattered to me, I assured her, was writing plays. She looked profoundly relieved and offered to take me on as a client.
I came across Fernanda Coppels play Chimichangas and Zoloft two years ago while reading plays for a foundation that honors the memory of my friend and fellow writer, Leah Ryan.
