More

Born and raised in San Francisco, California, K J Dwyer moved to New York City where he graduated from the Drama Division of the Juilliard School. After acting for some 15 years, including work at the Public Theater, the WPA theater, the New Jersey Shakespeare Festival, Virginia Stage Company, Portland Stage, John Houseman’s Acting Company and various off- and off-off-Broadway venues, he moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina, opened a Bed & Breakfast (www.elpavorealbb.com) and began to write. The last of his ten articles for The Huffington Post, What’s Left? (2010), proved to be the inspiration for his first play, Long Division, which was a selected finalist in the MetLife Foundation’s Nuestras Voces National Playwriting Competition in October of 2013 in New York City. In March of 2015, his one-act play Vestiges was a selected finalist in the Tennessee Williams Literary Festival’s One-Act Play Contest in New Orleans, Louisiana. Although both a U.S. and Irish citizen, from 2004-2015 he maintained dual residency between the United States and Argentina. In August of 2015, he moved to Paris where El Fin del Mundo, his second full-length play, was read by Moving Parts during the COP21 Climate Conference in December 2015 and was a selected finalist in Strange Sun Theater’s Greenhouse Project in January of 2016 in New York City.
