Seth Bockley


Old stories, illuminated in new ways.

New stories, imaginatively told.

I write plays, literary adaptations, and multimedia works.

I direct adventurous theater, immersive events, outrageous spectacles, evocative videos. 

I engage in deep collaborations and I follow where the story takes me.

I love the poetry of the moment.
