Deborah Bostock-Kelley – Playwright 11:11

Deborah Bostock-Kelley is grateful to have such an incredible cast and crew.  She is a multi-time, award-winning playwright, and a director, producer, actor – pretty much in that order. Her work has appeared across stages in Tampa Bay, competing in every year of the Tampa Bay Theatre Festival and was honored with the inaugural Tampa Bay Theatre Festival Denise Deneen Award recognizing her work in the theatre community. Her one-acts have also been performed at Carrollwood Players One Act Weekend, 4×6 Festival, Powerstories SheVolution Festival, and Tarpon Arts.

She received the inaugural 2019 Tampa Bay Theatre Festival Denise Deneen award for her work in theatre and a 2017 recipient of Theatre Tampa Bay’s Jeff Norton Dream Grant. With the grant, she produced her original gun violence production with Peter Nason,”A Necessary Conversation” at the Straz Center which went on to win Regional Broadway World’s 2018 “Best Actor” and “Best Actress” Awards and was nominated for Regional Broadway World’s “Best Original Script of the Decade” and 2021 “Best Original Production.”  The new, expanded production, written after the Stoneman Douglas school shooting, earned 2021 Regional Broadway World “Best Performer and Supporting Performer in a Streaming Play,” and “Critic’s Choice” in Powerstories’ Voices of Truth Festival in March 2021.  Her comedy “Once Upon Uhh” was also featured in the inaugural Powerstories’ Voices of Women Theatre Festival in 2021.

Amy C. Ragg

Amy C. Ragg has been at home on Tampa Bay Area stages since she was in elementary school, a long, LONG time ago. After many years and many roles, Amy had the good fortune to meet Deb Kelley, and their friendship has changed her life. Amy has been honored to bring to life several characters penned by Deb, most notably Rose in the award-winning piece, A Necessary Conversation. Amy is delighted to have the chance to give voice to Alise. She is grateful to Deb for using her words and her talent to bring attention to the challenges facing society today. As the movement to roll back the rights of women, BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ people all over the country gathers momentum, it is the brave artists who use their platforms to give voice to the oppressed, who bring opposing parties to compassion and then to working together for true and lasting change. Deb Kelley is among the best of those artists. Amy
fervently hopes that Deb’s words will spark awareness and change.
