Caitlin Montanye Parrish
Caitlin Parrish’s career began at age 18 when she won the 2003 National Young Playwrights Competition with her first play The View from Tall, which subsequently ran off-broadway. A forthcoming adaptation of The View from Tall marks the beginning of her film career, as both screenwriter and co-director. Her collaborator and co-director Erica Weiss directed her sold-out hit A Twist of Water for Route 66 Theatre Company, which also enjoyed an off-broadway run at 59E59. Route 66 also recently produced the world premiere of her play The Downpour, which was named a finalist by the American Theatre Critics Association for the Steinberg Award for Best New American Play – an honor A Twist of Water received in 2011 as well. Her work in television includes stints as a writer for Emily Owens, M.D., and two seasons of Under the Dome. She is a recipient of the prestigious Humanitas Award for her original television pilot Painkiller.
