Peter Anthony Fields wrote and performed in dozens of radio plays that were aired on WJCU, John Carroll University from 1997 to 2002. Then, from 2003 to 2015, as a director, editor, and co-writer, Fields shepherded fourteen short and feature-length, independent films. His film work awards include a Telly® Award and a Communicator® Award.
Fields’ work as a filmmaker ended when he was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson’s disease in 2015.
Despite this life challenge, Fields wanted to continue his career as a storyteller. So, he turned to his other passion—the Theatre—and became a playwright.
Fields has written several stage plays which have been read or performed at play festivals in Ohio, Texas, Wisconsin, Saint Louis, MO, and London, U.K. In 2020, Fields’ full length stage play, “That Guy”, won the BEST BOOK AWARD in the Performing Arts category, sponsored by American Book Fest. In 2021, the video productions of his monologue, “Another Kind of Cancer” and his short play, “You People”, each won a Davey Award®. Peter earned his BA from Kent State University in Theatre Studies with a concentration in Theatre and Society, and he is a proud member of the Dramatist Guild.
