I studied playwriting at Northwestern University, where I won the Agnes Nixon Playwriting Award for my first play. My plays have since been developed and produced in Chicago, New York, San Diego, and my home base of Seattle. In Seattle my work has been seen at Macha Theater Works, FringeACT, Washington Ensemble Theatre, Mirror Stage Company, Live Girls, the Mae West Fest, 14/48, and Seattle Dramatists. I’ve have taught playwriting at Seattle’s ACT, in San Diego at La Jolla Playhouse and the Old Globe Theatre, and currently at Seattle Pacific University.

You can find more info on some of my plays at New Play Exchange.

Smoke & Dust

“Like a master composer building a climax by overlapping melodies you never guessed would sound great simultaneously, McCullough at last dovetails her tales to provide a denouement as dramatically wrenching as it is deftly constructed.”
