Larry Americ Allen is the writer of a treasury of plays.

The Chef of Romagical Realism and The Obama Effect were selected for The National Black Theatre Festival's prestigious Play Reading Series. The festival receives over a thousand scripts and narrows the selection to about 30 plays. It’s rare that they select two scripts by the same playwright.

The Chef has been described by many as being Shakespearean or a modern-day Beauty and the Beast.

Larry Americ Allen’s Shakespeare’s Lost Masterpiece won The Perry Award for Best Original Play.

The National African American Read-In (AARI) was established in 1990 by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English centering on African American authors.

It has reached more than 6 million participants around the world.
