AMY FOX writes screenplays, plays, and nonfiction. Most recently she wrote the screenplay for Equity, the female-driven Wall Street film which premiered at Sundance 2016 and had a nationwide release. Equity has been called a “suspenseful feminist thriller” by The New York Times and aims to tell a great story while furthering the conversation about gender in the workplace.
Amy’s previous feature screenplay, for the Merchant Ivory film Heights, starring Glenn Close and Elizabeth Banks, also premiered at Sundance (2005) and was released by SPC. Fox’s plays have been produced by theaters in New York, including the Ensemble Studio Theater and Clubbed Thumb, and have been seen in London, Tehran, San Francisco, Austin, and St. Paul.
Amy has received writing commissions from the Alfred P Sloan foundation, and been nominated for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize. She is on the screenwriting faculty of NYU ‘s Graduate Film Program.
She lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband and two children. This spring Amy will have a workshop of her new play, The Club, at the Ensemble Studio Theater.
