Tracy Young is a theatre director and playwright. Tracy developed several original plays with The Actors’ Gang in Los Angeles, including the musicals Hysteria (Ovation Award), Euphoria (Ovation and LA Weekly Awards) and A Fairy Tale (Garland and GLAAD Image Awards), as well as Dreamplay, a meditation on Carl Jung’s theories of collective unconscious. She created several adaptations of classic plays and novels, including the critically acclaimed Candude, or The Optimistic Civil Servant (from Voltaire’s Candide for Cornerstone Theatre Company), The Servant of Two Masters and The Imaginary Invalid for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (with co-adaptor Oded Gross), and most recently a theatrical adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle In Time. Her most challenging and joyful work to date is Medea/Macbeth/Cinderella (with co-adaptor Bill Rauch), a simultaneous telling of Euripides’ Medea, Shakespeare’s Macbeth and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella. Earlier forays into Shakespearean translation include productions of The Taming of the Shrew and The Merry Wives of Windsor at Idaho Shakespeare Festival.
