In an effort to create opportunities and demystify the collaborative film-making process, F.A.B.A. invites professional writersdirectors, and producers to participate in our programs. This week’s guest is writer/director

Matt Morillo


Long Island-born playwright, filmmaker and humorist Matt Morillo has made quite a splash in the world of independent theater and film. After graduating film school, he made his debut with his feature, The Pretenders, an award-winning romantic comedy. His subsequent short films, most notably

Maid of Honor, also attracted numerous awards. He has since found the theatrical stage a very congenial venue for his writing, both short-form and long-form. His first play, Angry Young Women In Low-Rise Jeans With High-Class Issues, was a runaway hit on two continents and received a publishing deal from Samuel French, Inc. His second play, the slightly more serious

All Aboard the Marriage Hearse, also received a publishing deal with Samuel French Inc. and was originally scheduled for a four-week run, but positive reviews and rising attendance resulted in a two-week extension. Matt has since completed two more plays, the drama

American Soldiers (also published by Samuel French Inc.) and the comedy

The Inventor, The Escort, The Photographer, Her Boyfriend and His Girlfriendboth of which premiered at Theater for the New City. All four of Matt’s plays have also been produced in Los Angeles.
