About Tanya O'Debra

My name is Tanya O'Debra, aka Tanya Ritchie, and I'm know for saying and doing the most embarrassing things I can think of. People pay me to do this and I hope you will join them, because I love eating food and living inside a structure. This year, you will be helping me eat food and live inside a structure while I attend NYU's dramatic writing MFA program. In exchange, I will do my very best to entertain you. I'll share my new work as well as tidbits from the archives. If you know me from my recent plays, there will be plenty of new material for you to enjoy. If you know me from my years as one half of The O'Debra Twins, old treasures will be unearthed. Either way, we're going to have a good time. 

If you're just learning about me, here's a cute little third person bio. 

Tanya O'Debra is a New York-based Boston-born playwright and performer. She is a graduate of Smith College where she won The Denis Johnston Playwriting Award, The Elizabeth Wanning Harries Prize, and The Elizabeth Drew Prize. Her play Shut UP, Emily Dickinson won the Jill Cummins MacLean Prize, the Ada Comstock Magic Grant, and was presented by the Academy of Music in Northampton, MA. Co-written with Diane O'Debra, The Secrets of Avondale Falls was presented by the Cincinnati Fringe Festival. Published by Original Works, her play Radio Star has been produced all over the world, receiving numerous awards and accolades. Other theater credits include Patrice O’Debra in Straight Up Vampire (Joe’s Pub), The Evil Queen in Snow White (The New Acting Company). Amanda McCloud in The Ultimate Stimulus (Dixon Place), as well as being one half of the long-time comedic sister duo, The O'Debra Twins.
