Ben Kingsland

Ben Kingsland is an award-winning emerging playwright whose plays have been produced by the Source Festival, Rorschach Theatre, Olney Theater Center, Active Cultures, Journeymen Theater, and others. His ten-minute Trash Talk was bubbly, delightful (DCist), and the best of the evening (DC Citypaper). Volga Goatman was described as a mini-epic that had the audience laughing (theatreDC.com). Kingsland is the two-time winner of the Best Writing award at Bethesda Urban Partnerships Play-in-a-Day competition at Imagination Stage, and his play Spin also won Best Overall Production in 2010. His full-length play Whitehill was part of the FORUM series at Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey and was read in DC by Active Cultures and Doorway Arts. Pendulum was read at Olney Theater Center. Kingsland also writes theater for young audiences with commissions from Synetic Childrens Theater, Educational Theatre Company, and several individual schools. He received a project grant from the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County for The Twelve Daughters of Hercules, a comedy for teenage actors. Kingsland graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Johns Hopkins University with a B.A. in Writing.
