Anna Capunay is a Queens, NY native who began her foray into playwriting under Richard Caliban’s tutelage at the Gotham Writer’s Workshop. Anna realized she had a natural propensity for comedic writing which has resulted in highly praised staged readings of the dark comedies By the Short Hairs and Did You Know at the Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre and Theater for the New City, both directed by Rick Mowat. Anna has expanded her theatrical exploration to include directing, studying under Daniel Talbott at Primary Stages/ Einhorn School of the Performing Arts and helming the premiere of Meghan Mostyn-Brown’s short play, Forever is a Long Time, at the Seventh Street Small Stage. The Dramatic Question Theatre produced a workshop production of her play, Cowl Girl, at Theater 3 in April 2013, New York City. This piece was adapted into a television pilot by Arrow and Key Productions, shot in Chicago in the Fall of 2014 at Cinespace Studios, and is currently in post-production (www.CowlGirlTV.com).
Did You Know was performed at Roy Arias Stage II in May 2015, produced by Paula Landry (Idea Blizzard Productions) and directed by Rick Mowat (SnackPack Productions). The same cast and crew subsequently shot this piece as an independent feature on location on Long Island just days after the stage performance. The piece is retitled A Cat’s Tale, and the film is currently in post-production. (www.aCatsTaleFilm.com).
