Hi!, I'm Tramaine Brathwaite,
a Guyanese-American Playwright writing about the experiences around me to create a new reality.
Welcome to my world!
Tramaine Brathwaite is a Guyanese-American playwright and writes about topics that are honest, uncomfortable, and sometimes taboo. She believes that life is a play waiting to happen…just write. Some of her written plays include: Unnerving Stains, Enigma, Last Train to Glen Echo, Point…Blank…Period!, and Count It All Joy. She also wrote and produced a short film entitled Unheard. Tramaine was a 2015-2016 Horizon Theatre Company Apprentice, 2016-2017 Working Title Playwrights Rhame Scholarship recipient, a 2017-2018 Atlanta Women in Theatre Mentorship recipient, and is a member of The Dramatist Guild. In 2017, Tramaine was published in The Louisville Review No. 81.
She holds a B.S. in Business from the University of Maryland College Park and a Masters in Arts Management from Carnegie Mellon University. She uses her experiences and writes pieces that speak to the realities around her. Tramaine is a Maryland native residing in Atlanta, GA.
I was selected to be a part of Horizon's Black Women Speak (BWS) project. Alongside eight powerful Black Women playwrights, we are creating a cannon of new works that speaks to our journey. Click the image for more info!

Stop by for a snippet of past works or current projects! If you see it below I'm either trying to rework it or it's a new piece under construction. So, take a read and leave a comment. I'd love to hear your thoughts. You know, for those 'writer's block' moments.
Title: Quite Frankly
Gotdammit! An expression used when one wants to emphasize a point. Makes it sparkle.
And the point?
You’re a muthafucka…
Your build up was weak, Chantelle.
Twenty-four hours, Frank!
Yes, there are twenty-four hours in a day. Again, your point?
You almost hit twenty-four hours.
A wonderful conjunction, but something should follow. See what I did there?
