aliza Goldstein grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, and attended Stanton College Preparatory School -- a public high school despite its pretentious name -- and was first inspired to write for the school's annual night of student-written one-act plays. During her four years at Stanton, she saw five of her plays performed there, an accomplishment that she is more than a little bit proud of. Izzy Icarus Fell Off the World, her first play to win recognition outside the confines of her high school, was the award recipient of the VSa arts Playwright Discovery program in September, 2007, and was performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. with a professional cast when she was 15 years old. During the summer of 2008, Izzy was also performed at the Blank Theater Young Playwrights Festival in Hollywood, California, and was one of four plays recognized as winners of the International Thespian Festival Playworks competition. In 2009, she returned to the Blank and to Thespian Playworks with a play entitledOther People's Garden Gnomes. She is currently enrolled in New York University's Dramatic Writing Program, class of 2013. When not chained to her computer, she enjoys pondering the meaning of life, taking photographs of garden gnomes in silly locations, and sushi.

Izzy Icarus Fell Off The World
Dove is obsessed with taking pictures of Izzy, a local boy with autism, because she believes that Izzy can fly with the birds on the beach. Dove's friend Paige, a realist, is frustrated by her idealistic friend's futile quest to capture Izzy's flight on film. When Dove continues to follow Izzy, she ultimately learns a lesson about the nature of magic and the real world.
