Diana Wyenn

As a freelance theater director and dramaturg, DIANA WYENN challenges and inspires audiences to see beyond the usual. She has collaborated on large spectaculars and intimate performances with Disney, RadarWorks, Center Theatre Group, Padua Playwrights, anonymous bodies, and electronic music artist RYAT. Based in Los Angeles, she has directed and workshopped plays for East West Players, Circle X Theatre Company, Ensemble Studio Theater/LA, Padua Playwrights, Open Fist Theatre Company, Theatre of Note, Sacred Fools, Son of Semele Ensemble, Unknown Theater, and Inkwell Theater, where she currently serves as literary manager.

Committed to the development of new works for the stage, she co-founded and facilitates Circle Readings, serves on the steering committee of Directors Lab West, and is an associate artist with Theatre Dybbuk and Ghost Road Company. Offstage, Wyenn has shared her own story about living with Type 1 Diabetes through a v-blog called Life by the Numbers, and in 2012 she transformed the 405 freeway closure into ARTmageddon, a two-day citywide celebration of the arts.

Wyenn holds a BFA in Drama from New York University with Honors, and is a proud associate member of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society.
