Laurie Flanigan Hegge
Laurie Flanigan Hegge is a playwright, lyricist, and theatre artist from Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. She loves building stories around women buried by history.
Plays include Loose Lips Sink Ships, See Jane Vote, Hormel Girls, Twenty Days to Find a Wife, Sweet Land, the musical (based on beloved indie film of the same name), Boxcar and her most recent commission for the History Theatre in St. Paul, Dirty Business, a musical about the infamous spy Betty Pack.
