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


Based in San Francisco, Lynea writes, directs, and produces solo shows, plays, screenplays, and musical work and is a Founding Artist of the ORO Arts Lab, an incubator for emerging Bay Area artists.

With the support of grants from the Zellerbach Family Foundation and Theatre Bay Area, she is currently adapting her play, THE PAYMASTER’S DREAM, into a TV pilot and developing the libretto and music for TIAMAT, an opera based on ancient Babylonian myth, in collaboration with composer Ramin Zoufonoun.

Other projects in the works include THE EDUCATION OF ADDY JIM√ČNEZ, currently a finalist in ScreenCraft’s 2021 Stage Play Competition, and JOSEPHINE STOUT an hour-long comedy pilot, currently in the quarterfinals of the Cinestory TV Contest.
