I've written numerous plays, including Fire on Earth, Flight, Constant State of Panic, Pieces of Whitey, Blinders, and Reading the Mind of God, which have been staged in theatres across the country and around the world. My first novel, Tornado Siren, was published by Behler Publications in 2006, and is now published as an ebook on Smashwords and other sites.
I like to start things: I helped startBoston's Rhombus Playwrights writers' group, the Chameleon Stage theatre company in Denver, the Bare Bones Theatre company in New York, the publication Market InSight... for Playwrights, and the on-line Playwrights' Submission Binge.
My plays are published by Playscripts, Brooklyn Publishers, Heuer, Smith & Kraus, Original Works Publishers, and Volcano Quarterly.
I am a member of the Dramatists Guild and StageSource. My radio plays have been broadcast on NPR and elsewhere. I blog about the writing life at The Writing Life x3.
Both Blinders and Reading the Mind of God were nominated for Best New Play by the Denver Drama Critics Circle. Awards I've won include the Colorado Arts Innovation Award, a Playwriting Fellowship from the Colorado Council on the Arts, the Festival of Emerging American Theatre, the New American Theatre Festival, the In10 UMBC Competition, and the Market House Theatre One-Act Play Award.
In my spare time, I like to farm. My latest farm project is the Pen and Pepper Farm in Dracut, MA.

Moving (A Life in Boxes)
by Patrick Gabridge
Jed and Lila are compulsive movers. For them, moving boxes, packing tape, and open houses are the ultimate aphrodisiacs. They move 18 times in 18 years--for fun, to recover from tragedy, and for new opportunities—until Lila decides she wants to put down roots, in Boston. Moving tells the story of a marriage challenged by wanderlust, regular old lust, obsession, infertility and adoption, and race.
by Patrick Gabridge
Tornado researcher Victoria meets a man who might change not only her life, but her entire conception of reality. They must decide how much they're willing to sacrifice in order to remain together, as their new love is tested by the ultimate forces of nature.
