Xavier George: Playwright
Xavier George is the alter-ego of a buttoned-up professor of political science, known for their research on environmental justice and oil refineries. George writes plays and fiction about topics the professor is too scared to touch, like neurodiversity, gender, aging, and sex. Their work has been featured in Hear Me Out Monologues’ monthly online series, Some1Speaking.
