Louis Broome combines modern and classic styles in plays that explore universal themes. Working largely in verse, which he calls "the natural language of theater," he writes plays that have been called "mind-stretching theater," "new and traditional, holy and irreverent," "exuberant, lyrical, touching," and "astonishingly original." Louis's Texarkana Waltz received four Ovation Award nominations during its Los Angeles premiere and was produced in Seattle and New York; Blood Brothers and La Maison Cochon were broadcast live on public radio; and The Reckoning ran in Seattle. Waukhomis Elder care, Suite 27 appears in the Dramatic Publishing anthology Scenes and Monologues for Mature Actors Vol II. For television, Louis was host and producer of Neil Gaiman: Notes from the Underground, and producer of Henry Mark’s City for KCTS Seattle. Louis studied acting and directing at Webster University, St. Louis, MO. He returned to his hometown, Tulsa, OK, where he was a resident member of the American Indian Theatre Company. He is a founding member of the Tulsa playwright ensemble Red Meat Substitutes and has lectured on writing and speaking dramatic verse at Texas A&M and the University of Oklahoma. He serves on the selection committee of the University of Oklahoma's Faith Broome Playwright in Residence Program, which promotes the development of emerging playwrights. He is currently at work on A Trick or Treat, the story of a high-school Halloween ball that goes to hell, and Tanglewood, the second installment in the Texarkana Trilogy.
