MIKE FOLIE (Playwright) Six of Mike's plays have been produced at NJ Rep - An Unhappy Woman; The Adjustment; Lemonade; Naked by the River; Slave Shack; and Panama, the last three as world premieres. In addition, NJ Rep has produced staged readings of Mike's plays Boxes and Home Movies. The Adjustment was produced Off-Broadway at the 91st Street Theater, played for six months in Los Angeles, and was produced on tour in Great Britain with Stefanie Powers. NJ Rep's East Coast premiere of Mike's An Unhappy Woman (now titled Love in the Insecurity Zone) was called "hilarious" by The New York Times; other productions of the play have taken place in Los Angeles and Buffalo. Naked By The River has gone on to be produced in Connecticut, Florida, New York, California, and Texas. Panama, another NJ Rep premiere, was subsequently produced at the Edison Theater, Long Beach, California and at Oregon Stage Works in Ashland, Oregon. Panama was also featured in the 2003 Dublin, Ireland Fringe Festival. Mike has been commissioned by Broadway and film producer George W. George (My Dinner with André; Dylan; Bedroom Farce) to write a play about the sex researcher Alfred Kinsey. Mike lives with his wife, Frances Mayer, a schoolteacher, and his two children, Brendan and Lizzie, in Rockland County, New York. You can visit his website at: www.mikefolie.com.
