Writer. Fighter. Igniter.
Matron Saint of Cats.
Born in California, but born for New York, Janice Lagata is a prolific (sometimes petty) writer, musician and producer.
As an active member of The Dramatist Guild, Maestra and the Irreverant Media Group, Janice is always up to something and into anything that involves exploring the intersections of race, faith, feminism and art.
Highlighted works include:
- Scandusical, a musical parody of the TV show Scandal.
- The Divide, a book of spoken word poetry on race and faith.
- Balances/The Wives/Thirds, a trilogy of one-act plays exploring the erasure of Black women in Evangelical spaces.
- Heart For This House, sketch work about sketchy church culture.
