LAURA SANSING PFIZENMAYER is an Alabama native and graduate of the University  of  Alabama,  Birmingham. She spent the first act of her life in Birmingham raising children and suppressing the deep urge to write. The second act of her life began when with her husband Richard and the youngest two of their six children (the others had all been successfully launched from the nest) she moved to York, SC in 1995.  After working backstage for Rock Hill Community Theatre and listening through six weeks of rehearsal and three weeks of performances she thought, “I can do this and I can do it better.”   With a copy of the Samuel French play struture guidelines in hand she began writing plays.   Since those first awkward efforts she has had over 100 productions throughout the United States.

         The third act of her life began when she returned to her home state in 2010 to live full time in Gulf Shores where she’s “writing at the beach”.  Specializing in southern family comedy, Laura is an award-winning playwright who has had productions throughout the United States including New York and Washington, DC.  She is a member of the Dramatist Guild and the International Center for  Women Playwrights. She now considers South Baldwin Community Theatre her “home” theatre where she serves on the theatre board.
