"Playwright Rose Martula has been called “the Chekhov of her generation". Selected by Dramatists Guild Magazine as "1 of 50 playwrights to watch", interest in her plays has been received by the Royal Court Theatre, the Manhattan Theatre Club, the Atlantic Theatre, the Geffen Playhouse, Labyrinth Theatre Company, the Mark Taper Forum, the Chesterfield Film Project, Playwrights Horizons, South Coast Rep, La Jolla Playhouse, the Magic Theatre, the Goodman, Oregon Shakespeare Festival & Yale School of Drama/Yale Repertory Theatre. A Young Playwrights finalist & two-time Skirball McKennis winner, nominated for a LARK Pony-Fellowship, a semi-finalist for the 2009 Princess Grace Awards as well at PlayLabs at The Playwrights Center, Martula most recently worked with Pulitzer-prize winning playwright, Lanford Wilson on an adaption of his play Balm and Gilead. London Arts Blog/UK Fridge writes, "With her 2nd production in London, her first full-length premiering at the Old Red Lion in 2007, this is a playwright of undeniable skill and appeal, and her newest play, Brooklyn, is a continued display of her talent and creativity. Ms. Martula’s play is a rapid-fire dialogue, which builds in intensity over its hour run time to a harrowing and shocking conclusion."
