MARTIN DOCKERY is a frequent performer in New York City’s storytelling scene, appearing on the stages of The Moth, Speakeasy, Talkingstick, Mouthpiece, The Liar Show, and others. His hilarious and thought-provoking stories—often about his solo backpacking adventures which have taken him to over sixty countries and 6 continents—have made him a five-time finalist in The Moth’s bi-annual Grandslam Storytelling Championship. Dockery received his B.A. in English from Kenyon College and his M.F.A. in playwriting from Columbia University. He was a co-creator of the play C-R-E-P-U-S-C-U-L-E, which is now running on Broadway as The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. His play Oh, That Wily Snake! is being read by university students as part of a McGraw-Hill anthology textbook on literature. The New York Times has called his writing “fey and fantastic,” Backstage West has called it “deliciously enjoyable,” and the L.A. Weekly has deemed it “compelling . . . entertaining . . . divinely inspired.”
