Matt Morillo

Matt Morillo is a Long Island-born playwright, filmmaker and humorist who has made quite a splash in the world of independent theater and film. After graduating film school, he made his debut with his feature, The Pretenders, an award-winning romantic comedy. His subsequent short films, most notably Maid of Honor, also attracted numerous awards. He has since found  the theatrical stage a very congenial venue for his writing, both short-form and long-form. His first play, Angry Young Women In Low-Rise Jeans With High-Class Issues, was a runaway hit on two continents and received a publishing deal from Samuel French, Inc. His second play, the slightly more serious All Aboard the Marriage Hearse, also received a publishing deal with Samuel French Inc. and was originally scheduled for a four-week run, but positive reviews and rising attendance resulted in a two-week extension. Matt has since completed two more plays, the drama American Soldiers (also published by Samuel French Inc.) and the comedy The Inventor, The Escort, The Photographer, Her Boyfriend and His Girlfriend both of which premiered at Theater for the New City.  All four of Matt’s plays have also been produced in Los Angeles and the latter won an award for Outstanding Theater Performance at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Matt has recently launched his own website, www.mattmorillo.com, and wrapped principal photography on Angry Young Women In Low-Rise Jeans With High-Class Issues: The Web Series!!
