Nick Mann’s (’07) play, Baby of Mine, made the semifinals in the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s 2012 National Playwrights Conference in Waterford, Conn.
The play explores the struggle faced by a married couple whose first child will be born with a terrible disease.
Mann’s play The Invisible Men of Tennessee Williams was presented in the 7 Plays in 7 Days festival in Addison, and he is working on a sketch comedy show for the Frisco Comedy Festival Sept. 20-22.
Mann, who works as a teaching assistant for the Plano ISD, eventually hopes to write for both the stage and screen.
“And I dream big. I want those Oscar, Tony and Emmy Awards!” Mann says. “But ultimately, I just want to share what I’ve written and see my work produced.”
