Press release

Alan Weiner is an adjunct professor in Film Studies at Fairfield University. His journey as actor, singer, writer, professor, and artist has spanned the east coast of the U.S. from New York to Florida, and England. In the 1960s, he landed several minor acting roles, and creatively learned to find ways to support himself. He was able to secure a place with Lee Strasberg, a prominent acting coach, for lessons and advice.

Weiner spent time in Coconut Grove, FL, where he wrote and published his poetry, and later returned to the University of Bridgeport for courses in literature and writing. He furthered his studies in Western Europe and considered a Fulbright Scholarship offer for studies in India or Africa. He ultimately earned his M.A.C.W. in Creative Writing from Antioch International University, in Oxford and London, England, and later established a long list of creative writing credits including copywriting, songwriting, promotional literature, and freelance articles. He has authored a one-act play accepted for production at the National Theater of Australia, and has written an original full-length screenplay.

Weiner discovered his passion and voice as a performer, developing an eclectic resume of performance experience, from community theatres to voice-over. He studied at the Yale Drama School as an actor and as a student playwright.

Alan considers himself foremost an artist, and has found his voice in singing, acting and most recently painting.

There will be an artist reception at the Library gallery on Sat., June 30, 2:30—4:30 p.m.
