BrevoortPlaywright Deborah Brevoort will discuss her works and influences in her talk “The Writer’s Impulse and the Writing of The Women of Lockerbie” on Monday, October 5 at 3:30 p.m. at Mount Saint Mary College, 330 Powell Ave., Newburgh, N.Y.

The free event, open to the public, will take place in the college’s Kaplan Family Library and Learning Center, room 218.

Brevoort is best known for her play “The Women of Lockerbie,” in which a mother from New Jersey roams the hills of Lockerbie Scotland, looking for the remains of her son, who was lost in a plane crash. The play won the Kennedy Center’s Fund for New American Plays Award and the silver medal in the Onassis International Playwriting Competition. It has been produced all over the US and internationally in Scotland, England, Ireland, Japan, Greece, Spain, Poland, Belarus, and Australia.

Mount Saint Mary College’s theater group, led by assistant professor James Phillips, will perform “The Women of Lockerbie” on November 12, 13, and 14 at 7:30 p.m. each night. For reservations, call the box office at 845-569-3179.

Brevoort also wrote “The Comfort Team,” about military wives during the surge of Iraq; “The Poetry of Pizza,” a cross-cultural comedy about love; and “The Blue-Sky Boys,” a comedy about the intersection of creativity and science in NASA’s Apollo program.

Originally from Alaska, Brevoort now lives in the New York City area. She is a co-founder of Theatre Without Borders, a group of individual artists dedicated to international theatre exchange.

She holds MFA’s in playwriting from Brown University and in musical theatre writing from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where she was the Yip Harburg Fellow. She currently teaches in the NYU graduate musical theatre writing program and in the MFA playwriting programs at Columbia University and Goddard College.
