Alec Silberblatt playwright, actor
Alec Silberblatt found theater when he was growing up in Pittsburgh, PA. His play RYAN'S PUB, TRIVIA NIGHT was selected from over 600 plays to be workshopped at the 2023 Seven Devils Playwrights Conference. His play A TELL-TALE HEART, commissioned by Pittsburgh Public Theater, premiered online during the pandemic lockdown, and in 2023 received a live, sold-out world premiere run at Pittsburgh Public Theater in which he starred. He acted in and co-directed a filmed version of his play THE MON VALLEY MEDIUM for The Studios of Key West which is still available to rent and stream online. He is a member of Pittsburgh Public Theater's Playwrights Collective. As an actor, he's worked with George Street Playhouse, City Theater, The Studios of Key West, Ivoryton Playhouse, Off the Wall Theater, Hatch Arts Collective, Quantum Theater, PICT Classic Theater, Lake Dillon Theater Company, Pittsburgh Public Theater, and Hartford TheaterWorks.
I write plays about people living in the Mon Valley. People who live in or a few miles outside of Pittsburgh, PA. I seek to find the extraordinary in the ordinary, to make the mundane poetic, and to make heroes out of flawed folks.
I write plays that make you sit forward, cling to the edge of your seat, and laugh. Tales that twist and turn like the Jack Rabbit at Kennywood. Stories worth the price of a theater ticket.
I write plays that can be done anywhere for any budget. They have simple sets with an emphasis on the oral tradition of theater, great dialogue, and the love of a good yarn.
