NY, NY – Stuart’s play Resident Alien was originally produced at the Humana Festival of New Plays, and has had numerous productions in regional theatres across the country. A three- play anthology (Plays By Stuart Spencer) is published by Broadway Play Publishing. Other plays include Blue Stars (published in the Best American Short Plays of 1993-94), Painted From Memory (seen at New York Stage & Film in June 2004) and Alabaster City, commissioned by South Coast Rep.

His playwriting textbook, The Playwright’s Guidebook, was published by Farrar Straus & Giroux in 2002 and has sold over 20,000 copies. Edward Albee describes the book as ‘indispensable’.

Spencer also teaches playwriting and dramaturgy at Sarah Lawrence College, and in private workshops.
