STEPHANIE LYNN WILSON is Bronx born and studied acting at NYU School of the Arts-Theatre Program. She has appeared on stage and in film and wrote her first play “A WOUND IN TIME” over twenty years ago as a resident playwright at R.A.P.P. in the East Village. It had two staged readings and was a finalist in a Playwrights Contest. Years later after putting the play and acting on the shelf she began to write and film a documentary “The Descendants of Africa: Evolution of a People and Culture” as a way to fight ignorance that contributes to racism. She worked three jobs to fund the still yet-to-be completed work. After 9/11 health and financial issues forced her to shelve the project. It would be twenty years before she picked up the script of her first play again. She revised it and simultaneously adapted it into a screenplay to meet a deadline for International Film Festivals. The screenplay “A WOUND IN TIME” was a semi and quarter finalist in two festivals. Stephanie produced and directed a stage reading of the screenplay and decided to produce and direct the play. The urban mystery/thriller set in Spanish Harlem in 1993 showcased at the legendary Nuyorican Poets Café in October of 2010. During the play’s run director Rome Neal was holding auditions for “Julius Caesar Set in Africa”. Missing the stage she decided to audition for a role with few lines and landed the role of the Soothsayer. The acting bug had returned. The play opened a month after the closing of her play. During the run of “Julius Caesar” she completed her second play a historical drama inspired by the interviews filming the Louisiana Creoles for her documentary.    http://www.wetprods.com and http://www.awoundintime.com
