Jeremy Joseph Gable (born May 10, 1982)[1] is a British-born American playwright and game designer living in Philadelphia.[2]

Early life[edit]

Gable was born in Lakenheath, Suffolk, England.[1] He grew up in Post Falls, Idaho,[3] then moved to Barstow, California after graduation.[4]


Gable is best known for plays D-Pad, which was a finalist for the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's National Playwrights Conference,[5] American Way,[6] which made its premiere at Los Angeles' Blank Theatre,[7] the Flying Spaghetti Monster plays - which were covered by the official Flying Spaghetti Monster website[8][9] - and 140: A Twitter Performance, the first documented full-length fully original Twitter play.[10] His work has been seen in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Beirut, Orange County, Washington, D.C. and Spokane.[7][11][12][13][14][15]

Gable served as Artistic Director of the Hunger Artists Theatre Company from December 2006 to April 2009[1] where he directed the Orange County premieres of Sarah Kane's 4.48 Psychosis[16] and Bryony Lavery's Frozen.[17] He was named "one of Orange County's most genuinely innovative theatrical minds" by OC Weekly and called "one of O.C.'s more fertile theatrical minds" by The Orange County Register.[10][18]

Gable currently serves as the Narrative Developer for the feminist performance platform Ninth Planet.[19]
