STEVEN HOLIDAY

Since the debut of his controversial, acclaimed play Down the Rabbit-Hole in 2004, Holiday’s works have been performed and received readings throughout the Rocky Mountain states. Two-time recipient of the Snow Drama Society’s Best Original Play (for Down the Rabbit-Hole and The Fact of Twilight), named as a finalist of the Rocky Mountain Theatre Association Festival, and an official selection of the Playwrights Showcase of the Western Region, Holiday’s plays have been hailed as “witty and fast-paced,”  “filled with great tension, almost palpable,” and “simple, wonderful stories of the human condition filled with beautiful, real people.” An alumnus of Brigham Young University-Idaho, Holiday grew up in Colorado, Utah, and Norway, and lives in Idaho with his wife and daughter.
