Lyralen Kaye is a strange human. For example, she likes to sit alone in a room and laugh at her own jokes. So she is, in her own opinion, funny. Or maybe just crazy. Sometimes it’s hard to tell. She’s done a lot of stuff in this world. Like, acting, writing, directing, creating devised theatre pieces with whoever will let her, etc. It’s not like any of those things are a hardship, since she has a rockin’ good time doing all of them. She also teaches yoga and meditates, though sometimes she cracks herself up when she’s meditating, so no one’s sure it’s doing that much good.
She relates to other humans, one in particular for a very long time. This is the subject of much of the laughing. And some couples therapy. And making fun of couples therapists.
And also much fighting for social justice.
It should be said that in spite of (or perhaps because of) her chronic irreverence, Lyralen has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize in fiction and has won the Stanley and Eleanor Lipkin Prize in Playwriting (for a play about a Catholic housewife who has an affair with a nun). She is also the winner of the Amazon Super Slam Poetry Finals in Boston, was a finalist for the Massachusetts Council of the Arts Awards in playwriting, was a semi-finalist in the Pride Film and Play awards (for Saint John the Divine in Iowa), was a finalist for the Roy W. Dean Grant (also for Saint John the Divine in Iowa), etc. She ran with the bulls in Pamplona in the 80’s, but that’s another story.
