Inda Craig-Galván writes stuff – mostly plays and TV. Her work often explores intra-racial conflicts and politics within the African-American community. Grounded in reality with a touch of magical realism that fucks with time & memories.
Inda's currently developing new works of theatre with Primary Stages (commission), Greenway Court Theatre (commission), Company One (commission), East West Players (Writers Group), and Golden Tongues/Diversifying the Classics with A Noise Within and Playwrights’ Arena.
Produced plays include Black Super Hero Magic Mama (Geffen Playhouse, Los Angeles) and I Go Somewhere Else (Playwrights' Arena, Los Angeles). Inda is the recipient of the Kesselring Prize, Jeffry Melnick New Playwright Award, Blue Ink Playwriting Prize, Jane Chambers Student Award for Feminist Playwriting, and Stage Raw Best Playwright Award. Inda's plays have been included on the Kilroys List and Steppenwolf Theatre’s The Mix.
