Alice writes cheery bubblegum pop with dark existential undercurrents. She was a staff writer for BUSY TONIGHT (executive produced by Tina Fey) and the onset writer for the upcoming Netflix feature MOXIE, directed by Amy Poehler. She is currently developing a new stage play, a sit-com, and a horror feature. She is also a dramaturg and consultant for several new works, including the upcoming macabre musical THE MOUNTAIN DIGBY (Hudson Mainstage). She performs weekly at UCB with the improvised musical BABY WANTS CANDY and was a proud cast member of their total sell-out Edinburgh Fringe run in 2019.
Alice grew up on the South Side of Chicago. Before she moved to LA in 2018, she was a teacher and writing coach for Chicago Public Schools. At night she did improv and put up plays around the storefront theatre scene (plus once at The Goodman). She also toured with The Second City and developed their summer youth and teen revue. She performed with a bunch of shows at iO Chicago including the Harold team Hometown, the LGBTQ+ cast of Dreamboat, and the long-running Whirled News Tonight. Her eco-terrorist musical solo show MEAT CUTE had two successful sell-out runs at The Annoyance and The Cute Space. She turned that stage production into a pilot, at which point she was legally obligated to email it to anyone who so much as feigned interest until she got a job as a writers’ assistant.
She loves pastries and has seen one ghost.
