As a Dramaturg, Nell has worked with companies including the Wilma Theater, Azuka Theatre, InterAct and Plays & Players. She served as Literary Manager of the Philadelphia Dramatists Center for two years and has been part of Philadelphia Young Playwrights' Literary Committee since 2013.  She has been part of the selection process for the Philadelphia New Play Initiative and the Bay Area Playwrights Festival among others. 

Nell also works with playwrights and performer/creators on an individual basis to help them develop new work, including Jacqueline Goldfinger (CLICK), César Alvarez (ELEMENTARY SPACETIME SHOW), Blanka Zizka (ADAPT!), Nicole Quenelle (THE LONG TIDES) and an upcoming collaboration between musicians Greta Gertler Gold and Stew (ANNA HIT).  

Nell particularly enjoys working with people who are new to playwriting and devising to help guide them in the creation process.
