Who is Phoef Sutton?
Now available from Brash Books. 15 MINUTES TO LIVE, a wildly inventive, exhilarating, sexually-charged thriller.
Phoef Sutton is quite surprised to realize that he’s been making a living as a writer for over 20 years. He started as an actor and playwright in college; he was lucky enough to go to a small liberal arts college in Virginia, James Madison University, which encouraged student playwrights.
This was the first time he experienced the joys and terrors of having his words performed in front of an audience – an addictive experience. Phoef was one of the only undergraduates to win the Norman Lear Award for Comedy Playwriting. Other awards followed. Two Emmys for CHEERS. A Golden Globe for CHEERS. A WGA Award. A Peabody award for BOSTON LEGAL.
After graduation from college, Phoef had plays produced at various regional theaters around the country, had his award winning play BURIAL CUSTOMS selected for publication by the Theatre Communications Group and was awarded a National Endowment for Arts Playwrights Fellowship.
