Alexis K. Morgan

Alexis K. Morgan is a playwright, educator, and advocate who desires to use her art to create healing spaces for communities of color and for people with disabilities. As an African-American woman who has worked with students with special needs for fifteen years, she seeks to address issues faced by these two groups throughout her writing. Morgan's plays have recently been produced by Boston-based theatre companies, Company One and TC Squared. Her past projects addressed voting rights and discrimination ("Show Me"), maternal morbidity among black women ("Birth Pains"), and wealth inequality ("The Art of Trying"). Upcoming work projects include a project about race and policing in the United States and a piece about the lack of solutions for adults with disabilities. She is looking forward to having her first play, "Concrete Dreams", a story about black men's experience with the n-word and what it means to construct new identities in a world that sees them through the lens of negative stereotypes, performed across the Commonwealth in 2021.  Finally, she continues to develop her craft as a playwright. Recently, she was part of Company One's Season 21 Playlab that develops the work of new and veteran playwrights and had one of her plays produced in celebration of Women's Suffrage. In addition, she has served as both a playwright fellow and board member with TC Squared. Alexis earned her doctorate in Education Leadership from Harvard Graduate School of Education in 2018 and works with students with exceptional needs in the Greater Boston area.  In her free time, she enjoys baking bread and making vegan dishes for her friends and family.
