For over 15 years Goldie E. Patrick has been passionately working, living, and building artistic collaborations in theatre. A one-stop shop in the space where theatre is conceived and created, Goldie has a unique skill in imagining and interrogating the world of the characters and the play through her "triple threat" skills and experience as cultural worker, writer and director. With a zealous approach to developing and collaborating, Goldie has cultivated a vast culturally inclusive lens and praxis to her work. Working thoughtfully as a playwright and television writer and director to model past contributions to the canon of works that illuminate the Black experience, while simultaneously pushing the boundaries of form, style, and aesthetic. The unique intersection of her work as a writer, director and cultural worker is indicative of her wholistic approach to her writing.
With a fresh voice and perspective echoing the multilayered experiences of Black womxn and girls, Goldie brings a rigor of her craft to perfectly blend with a cultural ingenuity. As a bold public advocate for Black womxn and girls, she has gained international recognition for her work as founder, and Producing Artistic Director of F.R.E.S.H.H. Inc Theatre Company, for 5 years. Her work at FRESHH includes the development of a unique curriculum which includes a playwriting program for early career playwrights, culturally competent acting and devising techniques, and a series of Hip Hop Theatre curricula. A graduate of Howard University (BFA) and Columbia University (MFA-Playwriting), Goldie is actively working in writer's rooms and developing new works, while serving as the Director of Grants and Programming at the Dramatist Guild Foundation.
