BIOGRAPHY

Jeannie Barroga was born in Milwaukee in 1949. She graduated with a B.A. in fine arts from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee in 1972. After graduation, she moved to northern California and felt a connection with this place that hosts rich and diverse cultures and people from different backgrounds. Since then, the San Francisco Bay Area has been home for Barroga and a prominent stage for her career as a playwright. Barroga started playwriting in 1979 as a personal response to her father’s passing. Later she explored her own Filipino heritage and a broad range of cultural, political, racial, and ethnic issues in her plays.

In two decades, she has written more than fifty plays, including five that have been broadcast on cable television. Her work has been published, anthologized, and produced nationwide. Today, Barroga plays an active role in many theater groups in northern California and in the nation: the Dramatists Guild, Theater Bay Area, Marin Theater Lab, Quarry (A.C.T.), New Works Forum (formerly Playwright Forum), TheaterWorks, and Teatro Ng Tanan.

Since the 1990s, Barroga has been teaching playwriting in colleges, universities, and theater groups. She has taught playwriting for California State University at Monterey Bay and Colorado College and for theater groups such as Pintig Group in Chicago, Peninsula Civic Light Opera in San Mateo, Teatro Ng Tanan, and the Asian American Theater Workshop in San Francisco, as well as for numerous Bay Area high schools and universities.

A playwright and teacher, Barroga is also a producer, director, and literary manager. In 1983, Barroga founded the Playwright Forum in Palo Alto, California. She has served as literary manager for the Oakland Ensemble Theater.
