From crime and corruption to the ups and downs of romantic love, Lynn Snyder brings sharply etched characters to life as they grapple with decisive events in their lives. A blackmailed politician gets away with murder, a young graduate student uncovers corruption in her condominium complex, a group of senior Deadheads draw a police officer into their irreverent radical orbit, a conventional woman reinvents herself to compete for power with the mob boss who loves her.
Lynn Snyder’s plays have been produced in New York City, Boston, Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and abroad, in Scotland and Italy. Before starting to write plays, Lynn was a newspaper reporter, a publicity writer and speech writer for political campaigns. She lives with her husband in Berkeley.
