WESLEY MIDDLETON loves writing plays for young audiences. She first caught the bug over 20 years ago in a class taught by the incredible TYA playwright Suzan Zeder. Her play Tomato Plant Girl was developed and premiered by Metro Theater Company with UT/Austin and Idaho Theater for Youth, and went on to be produced around the US by companies including Childsplay (Tempe, AZ,) Geva Theatre (Rochester, NY), and Imagination Stage (Bethesda, MD). Her other TYA plays include Degas’ Little Dancer, developed and produced by Zach Scott Theater’s Project Interact and later by The Alliance (Atlanta, GA) and Unsorted, commissioned and produced by Metro Theater Company (St. Louis, MO). She has worked in many areas of theatre, as a teaching artist (ACT and Intiman Theatres, Seattle), festival director (Seattle Fringe Festival), and producing director (Ripe Time Theatre Company, NYC). In 2014, after receiving her M.F.A. in Television Writing and Production at Long Island University Brooklyn, she moved to Los Angeles, where she continues to love writing plays for young audiences and looks forward to writing for television one day as well.
