  "GET TO THE HEART of what is before you."

Lisa Nicoll is a Brooklyn-based writer and composer. Her farce Poedunk was produced in 2014 at the Oxford Playhouse, and is published by Indie Theater Now. In Passing will be produced in NYC in 2015 as part of the 365 Women a Year project. Other plays have had readings at the SUNY Playwrights Lab, as has her current project, The Dove, a musical about veterans.


Her compositions have been performed at 54 Below, and her pop single "Bad For Me" charted at #2 on AIU Radio.


She has created voices for the Sci-Fi Channel, and her fables and short fiction have been published by The Metropolitan Review. She is a member of the Dramatists Guild.




My current focus is on THE DOVE, an original musical in which I am exploring the effects war has on the interior lives of soldiers and their families, both during combat and post-deployment. As a sister of a soldier, this is a topic of great importance to me. As part of my research for this project, I was fortunate to be awarded a scholarship to participate in a workshop for veterans and their relatives, which took place at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY.
