PLAYWRIGHT BIO: Nicholas Gray is an alumnus of the Emerson College Honors Program, and is the current Artistic Director of City Stage Co. His first venture as a writer partnered him with local actress Hilarie Burton ("One Tree Hill"), and propelled his future with writing. His first play, "Population: 8," had its World Premiere at the 13th Annual New York International Fringe Festival. "The Dying Words of Edison Strange" is his second play, and has had several development opportunities - (Winner: HUMBLE PLAY New Play Festival of Appalachian Ohio; Development: The Required Reading Series, Vol. III w/ The Process Group and The Hive Exposed Series, both in New York). His short play, "The Two Ufologists," debuted at The Source Festival in Washington, D.C., and was also produced during Cape Fear Theatre Arts' "How-To-Fall-In-Love-In-10-Minutes-Or-Less," the original, local short play series, for which Gray won the very first award for Best Director of a Play at The Star News Awards in 2012.
