Brynne spent most of her childhood performing The Lion King as a one-woman show and writing spec scripts for Pokemon. As an adult, she has decided to basically keep doing things like that forever. Raised in Missouri and educated in Oklahoma, Brynne now calls Chicago home.


In July 2019, Dandelion Theatre produced the world premiere of Brynne's full-length play, Bury Me, directed by Ben Kaye. Prior to production, Bury Me was selected for readings at Echo Theater, Theatricum Botanicum, and Dandelion Theatre.


Brynne developed her second full-length, Synchronicity, with The Writers Room at The New ColonySynchronicitylater won the 2016 Davey Foundation Theatre Grant and received a workshop at Salt Lake Acting Company, and was selected as a semi-finalist for the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center's 2018 National Playwrights Conference. Jane's Heir (It's Bronte Bitch) was developed for Adapt Theatre Productions. More recently, Commission Theatre Company produced a reading of Brynne's full-length Pizza Hut Heartbreaker, The Prop Thtr hosted a Church of the New Play staged reading of Sh*itty Christians (Or, Turn to Romans 3:23), and Brynne returned to The New Colony to devise Age Play.


Brynne's short plays have been produced by American Blues Theater, Commission Theatre Company, 20% Theatre Company, Otherworld Theatre, and the Chicago One Minute Play Festival. As a script supervisor and director's assistant, she has worked on the world premieres of Look, we are breathing (Rivendell Theatre Ensemble), American Beauty Shop (Chicago Dramatists), and A Work of Art (Chicago Dramatists). She has also profiled Chicago theatremakers for PerformInk.


Currently, she is developing THE YOUNG ONES with First Floor Theater, continuing to devise AGE PLAY, and looking forward to the world premiere of PRO-AM directed by Regina Victor for Sideshow Theatre Company in May 2020.
