Best Local Playwright

Steve Yockey

Staff Pick

For more than a year, playwright STEVE YOCKEY has seemed all but ubiquitous, debuting such scripts as the full-length, darkly comic <>Cartoon for Out of Hand Theater, smaller shows for Dad’s Garage Theatre, Actor’s Express and Savage Tree Arts Center, and even a short film based on one of his works at the Atlanta Film Festival. Currently attending school in New York, Yockey — a former CL staffer — remains a presence on the local scene: Dad’s Garage will stage a new full-length play in January. A talent who deepens with every work, Yockey writes in a menacing yet pop-savvy voice that, in his short pieces, can turn ordinary monologues or conversations into short, sharp shocks.
