Rod McFadden earned his BA from UCLA's Playwriting program in 1982, and then took a 26 year hiatus from writing to have a tragically successful career in retail management. But in early 2009, he returned to writing full time. His plays have been well-received by Bay Area audiences of Broadway West, The Playwrights Center of SF, Wily West Productions, and PlayGround SF. His short play, Counting on Love, was a finalist in the 2011 Showoff competition. Rod serves on the Board of Directors for the Playwrights Center of SF.
