A relentless advocate for fresh, locally grown wrighting for the stage, Paul Mullin's dramatic innovations have flourished in productions across the United States. Most recently he conceived, co-wrote and co-produced IT'S NOT IN THE P-I: A LIVING NEWSPAPER ABOUT A DYING NEWSPAPER which enjoyed tremendous audience and media acclaim during its world premiere at NSCC Theatre One in Seattle. In 2008 Mullin premiered THE SEQUENCE at The Theatre @ Boston Court in Pasadena. Earlier in '08 he premiered THE TEN THOUSAND THINGS at Washington Ensemble Theatre in Seattle. 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 Off-Broadway run. Both LOUIS SLOTIN SONATA and THE SEQUENCE, were commissioned by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, in collaboration with Ensemble Studio Theatre. In addition to work for the stage, Mullin has written several feature film scripts and television documentaries. Mullin was recently recognized by Seattle's preeminent alternative weekly, THE STRANGER with a "Genius Award" for achievement in theatre. Though generally suspicious of any attempts to teach playwrighting outside of the crucible of actual production, Paul Mullin occasionally serves as an instructor at Freehold Theatre and has also taught at Centrum, Hugo House and with ACT's Young Playwrights Program. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Paul now makes his home in Seattle with his wife and two sons.
