My name is Lisa Meyers and I am a writer and theatre artist, with an MFA in Playwriting from the University of Iowa. My plays are weird, queer, and poetic, with touches of magical realism & science fiction. I love small stages, low budgets, and collaborative efforts. I am also the Membership Concierge & Marketing Manager at Temple de Hirsch Sinai, the largest and oldest Reform Jewish synagogue in the Pacific Northwest.
At Iowa, I taught three years of theatre classes, and was particularly fond of teaching playwriting. I love motivating students to succeed academically and creatively. I’ve had experiences in all areas of theatre, from stage management to marketing to directing to acting to costumes. In both my theatrical & professional life, I always strive to go outside my comfort zone to learn a new skill, to wear many hats, and to support my collaborators.
At Temple De Hirsch Sinai, I welcome new members, support current members, and help staff and promote events. My job is very social, and I get to meet unique, interesting people every day. I work to bring members together and guide them toward the events, programs, & experiences they are seeking. I have a BA in Jewish Studies (and a BA in Theatre) from Smith College, and this job allows me to use my knowledge and gain more knowledge of Jewish culture, history, and religion.
I’ve lived in Seattle since July 12, 2014, and I’m loving my new home so far. You can reach me at lisa dot flora dot meyers at gmail dot com for inquiries and artistic collaboration.
