Robbie McCauley

Playwright, actor, and director Robbie McCauley became involved in theater as an apprentice at the Negro Ensemble Company in New York during the late 1960s. Her first play, Sally’s Rape (1990), a story about slavery that was inspired by her great-great grandmother, received an Obie Award for Best Play (1992) and a Bessie Award (1990). Her most recent play, Sugar (2012), is a solo performance piece in which she recounts her experiences of living with diabetes.
