LaDarrion Williams

LaDarrion Williams is a Los Angeles based-playwright, filmmaker, author, and screenwriter whose goal is to cultivate a new era of Black fantasy, providing space and agency for Black characters and stories in a new, fresh, and fantastical way. His first play, Katrina, won first place at the Alabama State Thespian Conference. In 2021, his play Boulevard of Bold Dreams (a story about Hattie McDaniel’s historic Oscar win) was a part of the New Works Festival at the Morgan-Wixson Theatre in Santa Monica, California.  LaDarrion is currently a resident playwright/co-creator of The Black Creators Collective, where his play UMOJA made its West Coast premiere in January 2022 and produced North Hollywood’s first Black playwrights festival at the Waco Theater Center. Serving as a writer-producer, LaDarrion has curated three short films on Youtube.

Blood at the Root, the first novel in his debut YA fantasy trilogy, is forthcoming from Labyrinth Road in Summer 2024.
