Ben Lobpries became a company member with The House in 2002 and appeared on stage in several early productions (most notably as “the gay cowboy” in San Valentino and the Melancholy Kid). Since then he’s been working primarily as a writer. Six of his plays have been produced in both Dallas and Chicago, and readings of his fiction have been performed in and around Boston. He holds a BFA in Theatre Studies from Southern Methodist University and an MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College. Currently, he teaches in the First-Year Writing Program at DePaul University and lives with the hipsters in Logan Square. If you see him biking around town, feel free to wave, but please don’t honk. He spooks easily.
