A relentless advocate for fresh, “locally grown” plays, Paul Mullin’s dramatic innovations have flourished in productions across the United States. His Louis Slotin Sonata won the L. A. Drama Critics Award for Outstanding World Premiere, and was read by invitation before scientists at the Los Alamos National Laboratory prior to its run at Ensemble Studio Theatre. Mullin’s The Sequence premiered at The Theatre @ Boston Court in Pasadena and The Ten Thousand Things at Washington Ensemble Theatre in Seattle. Both Louis Slotin Sonata and The Sequence, were commissioned by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, in collaboration with Ensemble Studio Theatre. He conceived, co-wrote and co-producedNewsWrights United’s series of Living Newspapers, It’s Not in The P-I: A Living Newspaper About a Dying Newspaper and The New New News which enjoyed tremendous audience and media acclaim. In addition to work for the stage, Mullin has written several feature film scripts and television documentaries, including Hitting The Ground, an independent feature in which he also starred as an actor. He is a regularly contributor toSandbox Radio Live! with his noir-angel detective series, Markheim. Mullin was recognized by Seattle’s preeminent alternative weekly, The Stranger with a “Genius Award” for achievement in theatre. Born in Baltimore, Paul now makes his home in Seattle with his wife and two sons. He is currently developing a play about scientific and philosophical investigations of consciousness tentatively titled Philosophical Zombie Killers. His thoughts on how Seattle can take its rightful place as a World Class theatre town can be read at his blog Just Wrought.
