Jefe's House

About Jefe’s House

My name is Jeffrey Stanley.  I’m an award-winning playwright, screenwriter, filmmaker and director working and teaching at NYU Tisch School of the Arts in Manhattan and at Drexel University Westphal College of Media Arts & Design in Philadelphia.  I’m a 2014-15 recipient of an Amtrak Residency.  Occasionally I also write book reviews, articles, and monologues thinly disguised as articles, for the Washington Post, New York Press, Brooklyn Rail, New York Times and Time Out New York.  I’m a past president of the board of directors of the New York Neo-Futurists, a former Amherst College Copeland Fellow in playwriting, a past guest at Yaddo, and I was a 2011-12 PDC artist-in-residence at Plays & Players Theatre in Philadelphia.  My screenplay Little Rock, a nonfiction book adaptation, is currently in development at Karen Firestone‘s Pink Slip Pictures in LA.   If you’d like to know more about my work please visit jeffreystanley2

Many years ago, screenwriter Joe Vinciguerra and a few other close friends during a long night of drinking started calling me Jefe Von Stanley. It’s pure nonsense. The nickname stuck.  This is Jefe’s House.
