Nancy Breslin has long been a writer, from scholarly articles and book chapters in psychiatry to reviews and blog entries about photography. Scriptwriting is a relatively new endeavor, and perhaps not as much of a departure as that seems, since three of her feature-length screenplays are set in the art world. She has also been on the writing team of two 48-Hour Project short films and has written many one-act plays. She is a member of Women in Film and Video and Capital Screenwriters Network.
Beth (3M, 1F) is a 10-minute play which turns the story of Macbeth into a comedy set at a high school reunion. (Semifinalist, Heartland Theater Company 10-minute Play Festival, 2015).
Bushwacked (5F) is a 20-minute play that follows five academics through several meetings of their book group as they argue over several issues, including pubic grooming. (Public reading, Playwrights Forum, 2016).
The Contrarian (3, any gender) is a 10-minute dystopian comedy in which an apartment resident is interrupted by two people who claim that social media proves he/she is now one of "them."
