Carol S. Lashof is a playwright, librettist, and educator. On International Women's Day 2014, she cofounded THOSE WOMEN PRODUCTIONS with director Libby Vega. Their inaugural production was JUST DESERTS at The Metal Shop Theater in Berkeley.
Carol's work has been broadcast on BET and NPR and has been staged on five continents—from The Magic Theatre and Woman’s Will in San Francisco to Peking University in Beijing. Publications include Medusa's Tale in Plays in One Act, as well as short plays, scenes and monologues in numerous anthologies. Clay, The Minotaur, Options, and Persephone Underground are published and licensed by Youthplays.
After receiving her BA from UC Santa Barbara, and her PhD from Stanford University, Carol joined the Department of English and Drama at Saint Mary’s College of California, where she taught until 2008--when she retired precociously to pursue writing full time. While on the faculty at St. Mary’s, she helped to establish the Creative Writing MFA Program and the Women’s Studies Program.
