"The talented writer and actress Elisabeth Gray" (The New Yorker) was born and raised in the American South before moving to England to attend Oxford University. She primarily writes, directs, and produces work that captures her Southern gothic heritage. Currently, she stars Off-Broadway in the Mint Theatre Company's production of Yours Unfaithfully. As an emerging female director, she has just completed post-production on a trilogy of short films starring Amy Sedaris, Lee Tergesen, Elizabeth Ashley and others for her production company Das Egg Productions, and is preparing to shoot her first feature in Crete in October 2017 . Last year, her mockumentary series UNDERSTUDIES, starring Richard Kind, David Rasche and Elizabeth Ashley was optioned as a pilot. Her play Wish I Had a Sylvia Plath, a dark comedy about suicide, won the Fringe First Award for Innovative and Outstanding New Writing. The play has gone on to have productions Off-Broadway in NYC, with Rogue Machine in LA, and has been translated into various languages for productions around the globe. Her tragicomic short film Socks and Bonds was a festival favorite in 2013, winning audience awards and jury prizes at festivals around the world. She was a 2014 IFP Emerging Storyteller at Lincoln Center.
