Sasha Kolodkin is a Baltimore-bred, Brooklyn-based playwright, poet, and performer.  A recent graduate of SUNY Purchase, she spends her days writing, studying drama, and devising new ways to degrade and destabilize the more dastardly departments of the United States Government (when she isn’t daydreaming at her disinteresting day job).  She is also a dramaturgical consultant for The Cameri Theatre, and a school ambassador with PFLAG.
