Jeremy Joseph Gable (born May 10, 1982)[1] is a British-born American playwright and game designer living in Philadelphia.[2]

Early life[edit]

Gable was born in Lakenheath, Suffolk, England.[1] He grew up in Post Falls, Idaho,[3] then moved to Barstow, California after graduation.[4]


In July 2006, Gable wrote and produced Giant Green Lizard! The Musical, a musical parody of the Japanese monster movies from the 1950s, for the Maverick Theater Company in Fullerton, California. The show received a positive notice in the entertainment trade BackStage West, particularly noting its "inventive score" and "off-kilter sensibility".[5]

Gable served as Artistic Director of the Hunger Artists Theatre Company from December 2006 to April 2009[1] where he directed the Orange County premieres of Sarah Kane's 4.48 Psychosis[6] and Bryony Lavery's Frozen,[7] as well as writing the Flying Spaghetti Monster plays, which were covered by the official Flying Spaghetti Monster website.[8][9] He also wrote American Way,[10] which made its premiere at Los Angeles' Blank Theatre,[11] - and 140: A Twitter Performance, the first documented full-length fully original Twitter play.[12] He was named "one of Orange County's most genuinely innovative theatrical minds" by OC Weekly and called "one of O.C.'s more fertile theatrical minds" by the Orange County Register.[12][13]

After moving to Philadelphia, Gable wrote another Twitter play, The 15th Line,[14] as well as the stage plays D-Pad, which was a finalist for the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's National Playwrights Conference,[15] and Go Ahead, which was presented at the National New Play Network's National Showcase of New Plays.[16]

In 2018, Gable adapted his play Watch Me Jump into a video game, which was made available for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android.[17][18][19] The game was nominated for an Independent Games Festival Award for Excellence in Narrative.[20]

Gable is a co-founder of the feminist performance platform Ninth Planet.[21]

2020 presidential campaign[edit]

In 2015, Gable submitted paperwork declaring an Independent presidential run in 2020.[22] He terminated his candidacy in 2017.[23]
