Jeffrey Sweet. Though produced on stages around the world, Jeffrey Sweet is most closely associated with Chicago theater. He has premiered plays at the Victory Gardens Theatre since the late seventies and is a member of its Playwrights Ensemble. Among his plays are Flyovers (Joseph Jefferson Award, best script), The Action Against Sol Schumann and American Enterprise (both American Theatre Critics Association prize-winners), Porch, Bluff, Berlin '45 and With and Without. Mr. Sweet wrote Something Wonderful Right Away, an oral history of Chicago's Second City company (a book which in turn inspired the creation of two other Chicago theaters) and two texts on playwriting, The Dramatist's Toolkit and Solving Your Script. He co-wrote two musicals, I Sent a Letter to My Love (with Melissa Manchester, based on a novel by Bernice Rubens) and What About Luv? (with Howard Marren and Susan Birkenhead, based on a play by Murray Schisgal). He serves on the Council of the Dramatists Guild, teaches at Philadelphia's University of the Arts, and guest lectures frequently at universities and theaters around the country. Mr. Sweet has also written for television.
