LYNEA DIAZ-HAGAN creates work for stage and screen about women, culture clash, and human natures we would rather ignore.

Based in Los Angeles, Lynea writes, directs, and produces for stage and screen. She is also an installation artist and video editor, focused on social justice projects that combine narrative, imagery, movement, and sound. As a playwright-director, Lynea has received a 2019 Literary Artist Commission from the San Francisco Arts Commission and grants from Theatre Bay Area and the Zellerbach Family Foundation. Her play The Education of Addy Jiménez was a 2021 Finalist in the ScreenCraft Stage Play Competition.

As a screenwriter, Lynea received the Carl David Memorial Award from UCLA’s School of Theater, Film & TV and was named a quarterfinalist in the Nicholl competition for the script Think Pretty. Early in her career she worked as a story analyst for the late film director Jonathan Demme and as a General Management Associate on the Broadway productions of CHICAGO and ANNIE GET YOUR GUN. By day, she writes and consults for nonprofits and tech companies. By night, she sings, writes music, and spends time with her family.
