Judith Plummer

Judith Plummer While it´s true that Judith Plummer hails from Tennessee, she doesn´t really consider herself a southern playwright. Born in Nashville, she first left home to attend Concordia University in Montreal to study cinema and then headed for Los Angeles where she received an M.A. in Professional Writing from the University of Southern California. While in Los Angeles, she interned for a producer on the Warner Brothers lot and pursued a career as a screenwriter. After moving to northern California in the late 1990s, Plummer became involved with the Playwrights Center of San Francisco and redirected her talents into live theatre. Later, following a crosscountry move, she joined Washington D.C.´s Playwrights Forum, which gave her the opportunity to study dramatic writing techniques with playwright Jeffrey Sweet through forum-sponsored workshops. Plummer currently lives in the Boston area where she is an active participant in Boston´s Playwrights Platform.
