Lauren Gunderson writes as if pursued by a bear: quickly, zigging and zagging.

“I’ve always been voraciously interested in the world,” she says. Theater allows her “to tell a funny story about violence, a violent story about love, a love story about science. I keep iterating. That’s what keeps me excited and keeps me going. Luckily I write very quickly.”

Gunderson, 31, has already had more than a dozen full-length plays produced, ranging from a musical for children, to a capitalist hipster take on “Macbeth,” to several deep-thinking dramas about science.
