About Dani Herd

Greetings, fellow cool kids! I am Dani Herd (they/them) and I am an Atlanta, GA-based writer and theatre artist. If you're from around town, you might recognize me from stages at the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse, the Laughing Skull Lounge, and the Highland Ballroom!

As a writer, I am the sad tall kid behind hopeisthethingwithlightsabers.com and I am a resident artist with The Come Up Show ATL. My first full-length play Monster Girls at Sunshine Doughnuts was a 2020 recipient of the Ethel Woolson Lab through Working Title Playwrights. My play gloria and minnie and the castle on the backlot was one of Synchronicity Theatre's 2020-21 Stripped Bare projects.

(I write a lot about monsters and theme parks.)

I am also the host of the new podcast "Star Wars Made Me Gay!," available wherever you listen to your podcasts. 

I want to write words that do good. I am interested in hope and friendship and mental health and, yes, monsters. I am looking for the financial space to create full-time. Thank you in advance for your support!
