Welcome to the plays of Claudia Haas. The plays have had over 1400 productions in professional theatres, tours, universities, high schools and community theatres. I have a large body of work for intergenerational and young audiences as well as young performers.
The plays have been honored with many national playwriting awards (the About Me page lists them if you're so inclined). They have been developed through the Old Miner's Children's Playwriting Contest at Utah Valley University. Bonderman Symposium (now known as Write Now), Playwrights-in-our Schools Grant, Purple Crayon Players at Northwestern University, and with Play Labs at the William Inge Center for the Arts. Locally, the plays have had productions or readings with Theatre Pro Rata, Little Lifeboats, The Phipps Center for the Arts, Lakeshore Players Theatre and in area schools.
I use a lot of magical realism in my plays. I like seeing the fantastical and the nitty-gritty of every day life next to each other. I am available for talk-backs, classes and Skype (no fee for Skype). Enjoy the site!
You can also find me on the New Play Exchange. All of the plays have full scripts for you to read.
