New England native Ann Tracy has worked as a director, actor, writer, and artist for more than thirty years, with a ten-year hiatus as a radio news announcer, news director, and journalist working in the Denver, Milwaukee, San Jose, and Sacramento markets. She was the first female voice on the air at KTLK Denver in 1977. Tracy was a theatre reviewer for Sacramento, California, radio stations KGNR and KXPR, the PBS affiliate (1984–1986). As a child she lived in Fryeburg and Cape Neddick, Maine, until her family migrated south to Massachusetts and then west to Colorado. After more than twenty-five years in the West, Tracy is grateful to be living in Portland, Maine, with her hubby and two cats.
Tracy is the author of ten scripts, seven of which have been produced in California: Hecuba & Dido: Love Gone Wrong, Dreams & Diatribes Redux, Human Love Rescue, Orestes 2.5, Looking for Richard 3, Dreams & Diatribes, The Secret Life of My Evil Twin, Paths Active Notation, and IMAGES. She is a member of the SnowLion Repertory Theatre Company's Play Lab in Portland, Maine.
Tracy is currently revising her adaptation of Chekhov's Cherry Orchard—called The Vineyeard and set in Northern California in the 1980s—into a non-narrative performance piece called Chasing the Past. She also writes when the spirit moves her for Medium.com.
