I've known Cody for over twenty years. First as a student and now, a fellow theatre colleague. He's one of the more talented playwrights I know and with a diverse field of work. I've had the pleasure to direct one of his works not once, but twice, the award-winning Guernica. If you're looking to be challenged, I highly recommend you explore his work.
Cody Daigle-Orians is a Louisiana-born playwright, educator and arts programmer living in Hartford, Connecticut.
He is the program and events specialist for the Westport Library in Westport, Connecticut. Cody’s work is focused on exploring the intersections of education, justice, storytelling and community building, with a particular interest in the expression of those intersections through arts-based library programming.
In his writing life, his playwriting work has been produced and/or developed at the Astoria Performing Arts Center, New Jersery Repertory Theatre, The Actors Company Theatre (NYC), Manhattan Theatre Works, Acadiana Repertory Theatre (Lafayette, LA), The Growing Stage (Netcong, NJ), Gadfly Theatre (Minneapolis, MN), StageRIGHT (Seattle, WA) and the Great Plains Theatre Conference (Omaha, NE).
