Elizabeth Hemmerdinger (September 4, 1945) is a Filmmaker and Playwright and earned her Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in dramatic writing in 2003 from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, where she won the Harry Kondoleon playwriting prize and her play We Can Do It!, won the Goldberg Prize. The same year We Can Do It!, appeared at Twelve Miles West Theatre in New Jersey. In 2004, directed by Isaac Robert Hurwitz, the play was presented by chashama in New York City.

Biography[edit]

Now We Can Do It! is being adapted as a musical, Dupsky Does It!, by Ms. Hemmerdinger in collaboration with Anne de Mare. The new piece was workshopped in 2009 at the Southampton Writer's Conference under the auspices of Craig Lucas, Emma Walton Hamilton and Steve Hamilton and Ensemble Studio Theatre and in 2010 in North Carolina under the direction of Jeff Little.

Star Dust (now Squall), starring Joan Van Ark and Vanessa Marshall, ran at the Tiffany Theater in Los Angeles. Squall was the winner of the U.S. West Theatre festival at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts; that another other plays, including Fine Family and The National Treasure continue to be produced around the country, including The Williamstown Theatre Festival, and in translation, throughout Italy. A ten-minute play, Rug Rage, won the regional KC/ACTF regional competition, and was then presented at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. A growing cycle of Rage Plays, including Rug Rage, Road Rage, Pissed Sister, and The Pier Group (Classroom Scenes and Monologues, edited by Kent R. Brown for Dramatic Publishing) have received various productions, including those by Stageworks Theatre, Pulse Ensemble, Theatre Studio and Speaking Ring Theatre's Vitality Playwriting contest. Pissed Sister is in pre-production as a short film.

Ms. Hemmerdinger spearheaded the The Real Rosie the Riveter Project, a growing collection of extraordinary filmed oral histories, shot by award-winning Spargel Productions. The subjects are women who once upon a time changed the social dynamic in America when they took the place of men on the production line in World War II and who are now redefining the common conception of aging women. The collection is housed at New York University's Tamiment Library. Ms. Hemmerdinger has taught literacy at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women; has served as a panelist and mentor at the Vassar College Drama and Film Conference; and sits on the Dean's Council of the Tisch School of the Arts. She is a member of the Board of Directors of Women's Voices For Change and a contributor to its website. Ms. Hemmerdinger is a founding board member of Dancing Dreams, which offers girls with severe physical disabilities the chance to dance.
