Bo Wilson

Bo Wilson makes his home in Richmond, VA, where he works as a professional playwright. He has won a variety of national awards and fellowships from theatre companies and universities all over the country.

Among those plays which have received professional productions in various cities across the country are War Story, Manly Men, A Wireless Christmas, Boy-Girl-Boy-Girl, Mister Dickens' Carol, and Listen Close. Plays commissioned for young audiences include Arthur and Merlin, The George Washington Carver Story, and The Emperor's Nightingale. His short play, Outside the Box, was chosen winner of the 2005 Samuel French Short Play Festival and was published by French the following year.

Bo is also regularly commissioned by science and fine arts museums to create site-specific performance pieces, on subjects ranging from Patrick Henry to Black Holes. (His personal favorite is an Abbott-and-Costello-style piece in which Bud tries to explain the number pi to Lou.)

A graduate of Virginia Tech and of the National Theatre Institute, Bo is also a professional voice talent, with several hundred radio and television commercials to his credit. Bo is a member of Actor's Equity Association and of The Dramatist's Guild.
