Emily Claire Schmitt – Playwright, Musical Book
Emily Claire Schmitt is the author of nine full-length plays, including The Inconvenient Miracle: A Mysterious Birth Musical, The Chalice, and San Luis 1989. She earned her BA in Theater and Philosophy from Saint Mary’s College (2012) and her MFA in Playwriting from the New School for Drama (2015). She is a practicing Catholic, a lover of Baruch Spinoza, and a CORE Member of The Skeleton Rep(resents).
Emily believes in magic in everyday life. She also believes magic must be sought, be it through spirituality, or art, or nature. Her hope for her plays is that they might reconnect those that experience them with that deep, primal, mysticism that is so missing from our modern lives.
