Lilly left her hometown of Los Angeles, CA for the freezing cold of Rochester, NY at 18– she wanted to see snow (she saw lots of it). She studied fiction writing for fun and political science with eyes on law school, but in 2015, when she graduated, felt the socio-political world was headed in a great direction, and it was safe to pursue her passion– writing plays, film, and television, and other things, instead (she now says "but art changes the world, too!").

Lilly recently produced and co-wrote Hairy Legs Hannah’s Feminist Quarter-Hour which is releasing on most podcast apps. She is currently working on a new play about a lesbian retreat trying to reconcile itself with the gender revolution and become more inclusive as it fails to garner attendees in 2019. She lives with her roommate and occasional writing partner in Brooklyn. When she’s not writing, she boulders, runs half marathons, makes latte art in a bougie specialty coffee shop, and goes to therapy (when she can afford it).

Lilly is also a script doctor for Fountain Ave. Productions’ Amsterdam Ave., and is available as a script doctor for other projects.

In this new radio program created by Woke City's Ministry of Progressive Affairs, feminist tweeter/Social Justice Warrior Hairy Legs Hannah tackles issues of discrimination, inequality, and free speech to teach kids about the liberal agenda– or she would, if she had any interest in following the script read by the white, cisgender male narrator. With her roommate/rival Shaven Legs Shawn constantly trying to steal her spotlight, and her sister Astounding Ashley undermining her at every turn, Hairy Legs Hannah may not be the hero Woke City needs, but the one it deserves.

BEST FRIEND

Full Length Play

Formerly known as Best Friend/Person/Girlfriend, Relationship Status introduces us to Elle Summers—a “walking college application” to most people, “loser” to some—who can’t wait to trade suburban Los Angeles and an abusive mother for Harvard and grown up conversations. That is, until her friend Matthew Durand asks her to be the “clean-up crew” to his soon-to-be ex-girlfriend Haley Moore and what begins as an awkward evening of crying turns into Haley and Elle spending every moment together. And maybe more? That depends on who you ask. Tackling sexuality, high school culture, and social media obsession, Best Friend shows us how coming of age in the Internet era hasn’t gotten any easier.

Crew would be chaotic enough on its own, but off the water, their coach shows up at their parties and drinks with them, makes lewd comments about their bodies, and is allegedly sleeping with one of them. Until one rower takes the fate of their coach and the entire team into her own hands when she takes this information to the athletic director.
