Alice writes cheery bubblegum pop with dark existential undercurrents. She currently writes for Mattel’s BARBIE digital series. Previously, she was the onset writer for the upcoming Netflix feature MOXIE (directed by Amy Poehler), a staff writer for BUSY TONIGHT (hosted by Busy Philipps, executive produced by Tina Fey), and a creative consultant for the 2020 GLAAD AWARDS. This past spring she sold a musical comedy about toxic masculinity to an independent theatre producer after a workshop production at New Musicals Inc., and her radio play THE DESTINY CINEMA 2 (starring Wyatt Oleff, David Mazouz, and Lianna Liberato) was produced by Must B Nice. She is also a dramaturg, most recently consulting on the macabre musical THE MOUNTAIN DIGBY (executive produced by Charlie Barnett). Pre-pandemic, she performed weekly at UCB with the improvised musical BABY WANTS CANDY and was a proud cast member of their 2019 total sell-out Edinburgh Fringe run.
Alice grew up on the South Side of Chicago. Before she started writing full time in 2018, she was a Chicago Public Schools teacher and ran an anti-Islamophobia playwriting program for underserved high schoolers. 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 loves pastries and has seen one ghost.
