THE pipeline playwrights

Jean Koppen

Ann Timmons' plays have been performed in many venues—Off-Broadway and national tour: Off the Wall: The Life and Works of Charlotte Perkins Gilman; Washington, D.C: Becoming Calvin; National tour: Beyond Shadowlands; Virginia tour: The Jamestown Adventure Express; Page-to-Stage at The Kennedy Center: A Very Present Presence, and Bigger Than All of Us. Ann's plays take a close look at accepted history and conventional wisdom, and feature protagonists who often unwittingly upend the status quo. Ann is a proud member of Actors' Equity Association, SAG-AFTRA, the Dramatists Guild and Pipeline Playwrights.
