Sharon E. Cooper is a New York City based award-winning playwright and screenwriter.
Her short film "The Seven Men of Hanukkah" has screened across the country and she is currently in production for the sequel called "Believin.'"
Here's what an evaluator at The Black List had to say about her feature romantic comedy, "The Golden Age of Kali" screenplay: "Its featuring of a lesbian relationship gives it a freshness, which combines with Kali and her Indian family in a truly unique way, and allows the script to stand boldly apart from similar iterations in the genre. The narrative characterizes Indian family culture with rich authenticity, specificity, vividness and joy that makes the moviegoing experience feel personal, warm, and intimate."
Dozens of her short plays have had productions across the United States, Germany, England, Hungary, Singapore, and India. Sharon’s plays have been commissioned several times, including at The Keller Theater in Giessen, Germany. She is published in The Best Ten-Minute Plays of 2010, 2014, and 2016; Laugh Lines: Short Comic Plays; The Bedford Introduction to Literature, and Literature to Go.
Sharon is a writing coach, yoga/fitness instructor, and proud to be a member of The Dramatist Guild, as well as a writer in the Stillwater Writer's Group.
