The Flight Attendant
Paperback now on sale!

The Flight Attendant is going to be a limited TV series from Warner Brothers Television! The spectacularly talented and utterly perfect Kaley Cuoco of “The Big Bang Theory” will star as my beleaguered flight attendant, Cassie Bowden — and executive produce, along with Greg Berlanti and Suzanne McCormick. Filming will begin in the fall of 2019. Cassie is among my favorites of all my heroines. Yes, she’s a mess, but I always felt her childhood pain and childhood scars when I was writing the novel. So, tray tables and setbacks up: we’re about to leave the gate!

A Play by Chris Bohjalian

Wingspan, my first stage play, premiered last year in New York City. Now you can listen to an original cast recording “audiobook” (or read the script as an eBook) of the one-act production. Download them wherever you buy your audiobooks or eBooks. The cast features K.K. Glick from TV’s “Odd Mom Out” and Grace Experience — my amazing daughter who has narrated all or parts of my audiobooks since 2014. The original play was directed by Oscar winner Alexander Dinelaris (“Birdman”).

Full Length Play

Midwives, a #1 New York Times bestseller and the novel where many of you first discovered my work, opens as a stage play at the George Street Playhouse in January 2020. I wrote the script –my first full-length play. It will be directed by David Saint.
