Lyralen Kaye, SAG-AFTRA, AEA, is a professional actor and award-winning writer who dreams of immigrating to Canada (and has applied). She began her career as a slam poet and solo performer, then moved into solo work. The election of Donald Trump has her questioning the nature of, well, everything, but certainly the absurdity of the world as we know it. This questioning led her back to storytelling, where, most recently, she won the 10/11/17 Moth Story Slam in Boston, MA, for her story, My Mother, the Nun and Me.
She has also won the Boston Amazon Poetry Slam and Amazon Super Slam Finals. In 2016 she was a finalist for the Half the World Literati Award, in 2015 she won the Meryl Streep-funded Screenwriters Lab and in 2002 she won the Eleanor and Stanley Lipkin Prize in Playwriting. She has a Pushcart nomination in fiction and multiple other finalist and semi-finalist credits.
As an actor, she has performed on various stages in New York City and New England. She can be seen in Martin Landau's last film, The Last Poker Game (soon to be released) as well as many other independent and feature films.
