*David Adjmi’s recent Off-Broadway plays, _Elective Affinities _(a monologue performed by Zoe Caldwell that was the hottest ticket in New York last fall) and Stunning, were hailed by _The New Yorker _for their “gorgeous blend of narrative, girl talk, and politics.” His play The Evildoers was developed at the Sundance Institute and the Royal Court Theatre in London, and premiered in 2008 at the Yale Repertory Theatre.  Other plays include _Strange Attractors, _and Caligula. Adjmi is the recipient of numerous awards for his work, including the Helen Merrill Award, the Marian Seldes-Garson Kanin Fellowship, and McKnight and Jerome Fellowships from The Playwrights’ Center. A collection of his work, Stunning and Other Plays, was published by Theatre Communications Group in 2011. Adjmi is currently at work on a “viral” memoir for HarperCollins. His play 3C premieres at Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre in June 2012.
