Marj O’Neill-Butler has worked professionally in theatre since her twenties. Besides being a playwright, She is also a professional stage director, stage manager, actor and a member of the Dramatists Guild and International Center for Women Playwrights. She is also a member of Actors Equity Association and SAG/AFTRA, professional unions for theatre and film.
Her experience on and off stage helps to fuel her playwriting because she knows what is needed to make a play work. Her first eight plays were produced by a Theatre for Children Company that toured throughout Vermont, New Hampshire and New York State.
Her goals now are to write parts for women because of the lack of women’s roles on stage. In particular, she writes for women over fifty. Since she has started writing older roles, many opportunities have opened up and there are more and more theaters catering to mature people by telling their stories.
