Ryan O'Connor


Ryan J O’Connor is a Geelong-based writer of original, alternative plays and prose. He’s the co-founder and executive director of Someone New Theatre Company, the winner of the 2019 Grace Marion Wilson Trust Award for Playwriting, and an acclaimed actor and director throughout NSW and Victoria, but he is also an excellent baker, a trained stage-combatist, a terrible gardener, and the erstwhile father to his ridiculous feline son, Kevin. He does his best writing while trying to avoid his responsibilities, but loves to tell ‘alternative’ stories: romantic comedies about Death, coming-of-age stories about old men, and science-fiction tales about mythological creatures, just to name a few.
