Sandy Asher

JEFFREY SWEET's plays - including The Value of Names, Flyovers, The Action Against Sol Schumann, Court-Martial at Fort Devens, American Enterprise, and Porch - have been produced in New York, Chicago and stages around the world featuring actors including Jack Klugman, Amy Morton, Jon Cryer, William Petersen, Lindsay Crouse, Judy Kaye, Michele Pawk, Reed Birney, Richard Kind, Nathan Lane, Gary Cole, Dan Lauria, Jill Eikenberry and Megan Mullally. His newest play, Kunstler, opens off-Broadway in February after a warmly-received run at the New York Fringe Festival. He has won lots of awards, but none of them is the Pulitzer. He also has written a lot of TV, winning a WGA Award and an Emmy nomination in the process. His new book is called What Playwrights Talk About When They Talk About Writing.
