Carole Vasta Folley is an award winning playwright and columnist. Described as having the "storyteller gift," Vasta Folley’s plays speak to the themes of belonging and “the crazy, complicated ways we connect with one another.” Her most recent work, The Seymour Sisters, is a drama that toured with support from the Vermont Arts Endowment Fund. However, comedy is her milieu. Whether a farce or “a laugh-out-loud ode to the bonds of female friendship,” Vasta Folley uses humor to invite the audience in, believing that laughter is more than an elixir, it’s a gateway to the heart.
